Parent/Carer Acceptable Use Agreement

Hackleton CEVA Primary School

Acceptable Use Agreement

Digital technologies have become integral to the lives of children and young people, both within schools and outside school. These technologies provide powerful tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone. They can stimulate discussion, promote creativity and stimulate awareness of context to promote effective learning. Young people should have an entitlement to safe internet access at all times.


This Acceptable Use Agreement is intended to ensure:

•    that young people will be responsible users and stay safe while using the internet and other communications technologies for educational, personal and recreational use.

•    that school systems and users are protected from accidental or deliberate misuse that could put the security of the systems and users at risk.

•    that parents and carers are aware of the importance of online safety and are involved in the education and guidance of young people with regard to their on-line behaviour.


The school will try to ensure that pupils have good access to digital technologies to enhance their learning and, in return, expect the pupils to agree to be responsible users. Please read and discuss the following rules with your child before completing  the form below. If you have any questions, please contact the school office.

  • I will ask a suitable adult if I want to use a computer or iPad.
  • I will only carry out activities that a teacher or suitable adult has given permission for.
  • I will take care of all ICT equipment.
  • I will ask for help from a suitable adult if I am not sure what to do or if I think I have done something wrong.
  •  I will not deliberately look for, save or send anything that could be unpleasant or nasty. If I accidentally find anything like this, I will tell a suitable adult  immediately. 
  • I will not share my password with anyone.
  • I know that my use of ICT can be checked and that my parent/ carer will be contacted if a member of school staff is concerned about my online safety.
