As the parent/carer of a child at Roding Primary School, I grant permission for my child to have access to the internet, school approved e-mail account and other ICT facilities at school.
I know that my child has agreed to the Acceptable Usage Policy and that they have a copy of this, plus the SMART guidelines in class (see below).
I accept that ultimately the school cannot be held responsible for the nature and content of materials accessed through the internet and mobile technologies, but I understand that the school will take whatever reasonable precaution to keep pupils safe and prevent pupils from accessing inappropriate materials. These steps include using an educationally filtered service, restricted access e-mail*, employing appropriate teaching practice and teaching e-safety skills to pupils.
I understand that the school can check my child’s computer files, and the internet sites they visit, and if the school has concerns about my child’s safety or e-behaviour they will contact me.
I will support the school by promoting safe use of the internet and digital technology at home and will inform the school if I have any concerns over my child’s safety.
Additional information on e-safety can be found on the school’s website, please use the following link to go straight to this information.
I give my parental/carer permission to take and use digital imagery and audio files of children for school purposes, including, but not limited to:
I understand that images and audio files of my child may be kept by the school to show good practice and for use on the school website, printed documentation and learning environments, and that my child’s full name will not be used when saving these in the file names, online or in any school produced and published materials/DVDs. I understand that these are stored in a central secure location on the school servers ensuring easy removal when they leave the school. If we, or you, wanted your child’s image linked to their full name we would contact you separately for permission, e.g. if your child won a competition and was asked to be named in a local newspaper.

* At our school we use the School Google accounts to provide pupil email accounts. Pupils receive a Google account in Year 1 and access the email element of that from Year 3. The email system is ‘safe’ as pupils cannot send emails outside the school but it can be adapted to allow for wider communications when appropriate. Teachers and technical staff can access pupils’ email accounts for monitoring purposes. Pupils are told to keep their email login details private, and not to give out their email address to strangers.
