Using the School Computers

The following rules will help keep our Computing Suite running smoothly and will make using the suite fun and safe for everyone.

  • We will leave the ICT equipment as we would expect to find it. (laptops/computers logged off)
  • We will always remember to save our work in our own area on the network so that it does not get lost.
  • We will only access our own files in our own area.
  • We will ask permission before using any memory sticks brought into school. (All must be scanned for viruses first, to ensure they are safe)
  • We will leave all setting on the computer as we find them. (occasionally pupils will make changes accidentally, please see Mr Irvine who will fix any problems)
  • We will remember to log off after each session.
