Students are encouraged to use information technology in their work.  We ask parents to encourage their children to read because good literacy is a key element in successful learning using the internet.  We have an extensive network of curriculum computers (Computer) to which every student has access via a user name and password.  Every student has a unique area on the network. Internet access is available to all students.

Students’ use of the Internet

Students’ use of the Internet can leave them vulnerable to a variety of risks from other users. The Principal is responsible for the safety and welfare of all students during the school day and will ensure, to the best of his ability, that they are protected and safe whilst in College. Students who try to by-pass the filter and monitoring systems will be punished.

We cannot filter and monitor home internet connections and what your child is doing on the net at home: this is your responsibility. We must emphasise how important it is that as parents/carers you monitor and check your child’s use of the internet at home.  Get help with safety online
