Responsible Use of Computers and the Internet


Our expectation at Hadleigh Junior School is that the resources used by pupils in school are carefully chosen by the teacher and determined by curriculum policies. Despite this, when using the Internet, pupils may be able to access information which has not been selected by the teacher. Whilst pupils will often be directed to sites which provide reviewed and evaluated sources, at times, they will be able to move beyond these, to sites unfamiliar to the teacher.

The problems and issues that have been highlighted by the media concern all schools. Whilst reports in the media can be exaggerated, there is genuine cause for concern that children might access unsuitable material either accidentally or deliberately.
