Acceptable use of digital platforms

All distance learning and communication should be completed with the usual high expectations of behaviour:

  1. One to one online meetings should be avoided regardless of the digital learning platform.
  2. Pupils should use only their own accounts when communicating on online platforms.
  3. All communication made should be respectful and not offensive to others, this includes the sharing of images, sounds and written material.
  4. Any online meetings should not be recorded on mobile devices without the host permission.
  5. Rules defined by the host teacher should be respected. For example, the host may ask you to turn the microphones off or to answer questions specifically directed to you.
  6. It might be helpful to place your device on a table and avoid background noises if possible. Appropriate clothing should be worn for any video based distance learning.
