At Abbot’s Lea we understand that the internet is an important part of life. That’s why learning how to use it safely is so important. We use the school computers and Internet connection for learning at Abbot’s Lea and ask pupils to follow our E-Safety rules to keep everyone safe.
We use the school computers and Internet connection for learning. These rules will help us to be fair to other people and keep everyone safe.
- I will ask permission before entering any website, unless my teacher has already approved that site.
- I will only use my own login and password when I use the school network.
