Use of personal equipment on the Boarding School Wi-Fi network

- It is required that pupils keep within the law – particularly copyright. Please note UK law may differ from your native country.
- All traffic is filtered and recorded in order to protect pupils from unpleasant, illegal or inaccurate material on the internet.
- The School network is designed to support those engaged in study and communication with parents; restrictions may be put in place if the School feels genuine study is being restricted due to misuse.

Devices utilising mobile internet
The Boarding School is covered by Wi-Fi network providing a filtered environment for study and communication with parents.
Many pupils have access to mobile Internet provided by parents; unfortunately, we cannot control the content accessed by these devices, nor guarantee its availability. Granting your son or daughter access to the web via mobile devices carries many unnecessary risks and is not allowed on the School premises (see AUP). For your child’s safety the School would advise you to speak to your mobile provider about filtering, managing and monitoring data services if you do allow your son or daughter to use them outside of school.
