ICT Acceptable Use Policy

All staff are reminded that the ICT acceptable use policy is applicable when using the network remotely and that you must logoff as you would in school. Failure to logoff properly could limit your access at a later date as the system will think you are still logged on from before. 


SIMS and school emails must not be left open or used for anything apart from educational purposes at any time including when accessed remotely.
