As a school we use the Google Suite for Education to help us in school and out of school.  After experiencing remote learning before the summer holidays we have all worked hard to embrace new technologies.

We would like to remind children (and parents) that when you are logged onto our school website and using the tools which are available to you that it is solely for school work.

Conversations should be related to school and work which you have been asked to do by your teachers.

It is an amazing tool and should be used with respect.

Here is a link to some You Tube videos which may help when using Google.

Tech Toolkit for Families and Guardians 

As always our school website has advice and links for all technology related issues in the e-safety tab.

Responsible Computer and Internet Use

At Ashley Primary School we use school computers and internet access for learning. The following rules will help us to keep everyone safe when using this technology.

* On the school network, I will only use my own login and password which I will keep a secret at all times.

* I will not look at, or delete other people’s files.

* I will not bring external memory drives or USB Memory Sticks into school without permission and will not use these on school machines.

* I will ask permission before entering any website, unless my teacher has already approved the site.

* When using the school website I will only use my own login and password which I will keep a secret at all times.

* I will only email people I know, or who my teacher has approved sending them appropriate and polite messages.

* I will ask permission before opening an email or an email attachment sent by a person I do not know.

* I will not use internet chat.

* If I see anything I am unhappy with or receive messages I do not like, I will tell a teacher immediately.

* I understand the school may check my computer and email files and may monitor the internet sites I visit.

* I understand that if I deliberately break these rules, I could be stopped from using the internet and computers.
