Restrictions – Options
The Chromebook that has been provided will initially be added to the school domain and set up as a school managed device.
Benefits for a managed school Chromebook:
– Pupils are familiar with how devices work as they use them in school
– Device is monitored and has a violation policy enforced
– Apps are controlled so more focus is on school work
Benefits/negatives for an un-managed Chromebook:
– You are free to do what you want at home
– You are not monitored or governed by schools policies
– Not violation monitoring which means you would have to monitor your child online
– No school support for issues that arise from suspect apps or configuration settings
If you would like to remove restrictions we need your consent with 3 options to choose from.
1 – Completely unrestricted as above. When in school the device will still have safety restrictions in place on the school network. Students will be able to login using a personal account and be able to access unfiltered from home.
2 – Managed by school in school and at home. Complete management by the school. This includes safeguarding software tracking at home.
3 – Restricted Monday – Friday 8.00am – 3.30pm (including school holidays) but open the rest of the time. Safeguard tracking will be in place during these core hours. PLEASE NOTE THE RESTRICTIONS FOR SCHOOL DAY ARE TAKING LONGER TO APPLY – WE ARE AWAITING FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS DIRECTLY FROM GOOGLE.
Please go to this form and select the option you require.
CHANGES MAY TAKE OVER 48 HOURS TO COME INTO EFFECT.
