Our e Safety Options

 

Peregrinate operates strict online usage rules governing access for learners whilst in class and generally whilst on school premises. Learners are not allocated WiFi passwords even when operating a Peregrinate PC or laptop and even then their access will be limited to exactly what sites they can view on the internet and which files are available to them on the School network.

Whilst using ICT for lessons our online security is such that we always have full control over the classroom. We can see all computer screens in an icon view and access individual computers with just one click. Taking screenshots of computers is a one-click operation as well. Our tutors can also draw attention to lessons by locking all computers and blocking input devices with the help of just one button. Tutors can take over learners screens to assist in the lesson or actually join the screen to help during any difficulties.

Internet conditions of use:

 

Peregrinate Schools computer systems, networks and the Internet are intended for training purposes only. Use of the Internet is subject to monitoring for security and/or network management, and employees and learners may be subject to limitations on their use of these resources.

We provide Internet access and email facilities to all employees and learners, for the purpose of work and to facilitate training.

Correspondence via email is not guaranteed to be private; so that we can keep our networks legal and safe, we must insist that you do not undertake any of the following:

  • Use the Internet/email for any illegal purpose;
  • Use chat rooms of any description;
  • Upload, download or otherwise transmit commercial software or any copyright materials belonging to parties outside Peregrinate School;
  • Visit Internet sites that contain illegal, obscene or otherwise unsuitable content, which is objectionable and inappropriate for the workplace;
  • Send or receive material that is obscene or defamatory or which is intended to annoy, harass or intimidate another person;
  • Open an email attachment from an unknown source.
