We help schools implement the correct and acceptable use of their ICT resources.
The inappropriate use of information and communication technology (ICT) resources could expose your school to risks including malicious software attacks, theft, unauthorised disclosure of personal data or disruption of your school’s network.
Your school is committed to the correct and proper use of its ICT resources – With our expertise and proven methodology, your AUP will reflect that commitment. Our experienced team will work closely with your digital learning team / post-holder to address your school’s acceptable use policy.
Stage 1: AUP Workshop
AUP Workshops are held with key stakeholders including Digital Learning Team / External ICT Providers to understand how the school handles data. Through these workshops, we’ll advise and agree on an action plan for the use of ICT Resources.
Stage 2: Policy & Resource Pack
The Acceptable Use Policy and associated Action Plan will then be prepared. The purpose of the Acceptable Use Policy is to provide staff, students and other users with clear guidance on the appropriate, safe and legal use of the school’s ICT resources.
Stage 3: Staff Webinar
Staff will then attend a live webinar. This webinar has been designed specifically to educate staff on the appropriate, safe and legal way in which they can make use of the school’s ICT resources.
Stage 4: Retained Support
When you need advice or support how long do other service providers wait before coming back to you? We provide same-day advice and assistance to you for up to 12 months as standard (Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm).
