Expectations and Guidelines
IT-use is a core part of the Enterprise curriculum. Here you will find information about our facilities and our expectations while using them.
The Enterprise department has two dedicated IT suites all equipped with a variety of software, including Microsoft Office suite, the Adobe suite and various programming IDE’S. The department is equipped with PCs, printers, scanners and laptops.
All pupils have access to filtered internet content. They are able to log onto GCSE pod and Microsoft teams to access work and marks. The portals can also be accessed outside school by logging onto Teams and GCSE Pod through the school website using their school emails and passwords.
Every lesson you will be expected to bring the following:
This is in line with the whole school equipment expectations.
Use of Computers
If technical problems occur, alert a member of staff. Do not attempt to rectify the problem yourself.
Treat all equipment with respect.
Use the internet and other services (for example Teams) appropriately, see below.
It is important to have a committed and determined approach to all set tasks.
When students use the internet it is essential that they are responsible for their actions in accessing networked services. All users of this facility will be expected to abide by the rules of its use.
The NUSA computer facilities should not be used for the following:
- Sending or displaying offensive messages or pictures
- Accessing undesirable material
- Violating copyright laws
- Using another's password
- Trespassing in another's folder, work or files
- Intentionally wasting limited resources (including time e.g. offensive or unwanted e-mail)
- Employing the network for commercial purposes
- Any use of the network that would bring the name of the school into disrepute
- Interfering with the functioning of the network in the school, the service provider’s network, or any other network that can be accessed through the Internet.
- Attempting to gain unauthorised access to any computer system, network data or resource.
Pupils should only print essential resource material, and should always check the length of the article or resource before printing.
Failure to abide by these guidelines may lead to withdrawal of computer access (including internet and email facilities) and/or further action under the school’s code of conduct.
