ICTAUP (information and communication technology, acceptable use policy)
WE RESPECT EACH OTHER
We must be considerate of other people when using all electronic media.
For example, we must not post images of other people on social media sites or any website without their permission to do so.
WE TREAT ALL PEOPLE FAIRLY
We all represent the school while on the network and internet just as we do when wearing our uniform on the street.
For example, we always acknowledge references of material in our assignment work.
WE ARE HONEST
We must use our computers with integrity.
For example, 1.We must not try to be someone else on the network, 2. We must keep our passwords secure.
WE WORK HARD
Computers are a special resource and are to be used for school work only.
For example, downloading unnecessary video slows down internet access for others. We will not attempt to access social media sites.
WE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL WE DO
We must take responsibility for what we access and we may be held accountable for any aspect of our use.
For example, we will not download any objectionable material.
WE TAKE CARE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT
We must endeavor not to cause any damage to the network through our actions.
For example, we must not create any security risks by trying to upload programmes or scripts to the school network, we must not use VPNs while on the school network.
These are guidelines and examples only. Network access is a privilege and it may be revoked where the spirit of these guidelines is not adhered to.
- All school rules apply.
- Devices are to be used during learning time for a learning purpose.
- Classroom teachers will supervise what ‘learning purpose’ sites, apps and games are suitable for their students.
- Teachers need to OK students using their device to make contact with others outside of the school.
- Use of devices follows our Core ICT Values.
- A strike system guides teachers , students and family members through a misdemeanour process.
- Strike 1 – The student receives a verbal warning.

- Strike 3 – The student loses all BYOD privileges for 1 week (5 school days). Parents are notified.
