Student ICT Acceptable Use Policy

Introduction:

We at Vikas The Concept School, value and respect everyone in our community and work as a team to provide learning experiences which support and inspire high achievement for all and also ensure a caring, safe and welcoming environment;

The purpose of this document is to ensure that all students of Vikas The Concept School computing facilities are aware of the School policies relating to their use and follow all Vikas The Concept School ICT policies and guidelines and to seek advice in case of doubt.

The following policy helps to define appropriate and acceptable use by students and also identify student responsibilities, and outline procedures for enforcing the behaviour on the Internet and handling violations.

Vikas The Concept School does not attempt to control the Internet environment for students. At the same time, we wish to make certain that parents are aware of an individual student’s responsibility when using the Internet at home.

Key Principles and Rules: Students

  • The School is providing the learning platforms and an email system to students to support their academic progress and development.
  • Students are expected to use the Internet responsibly and productively.
  • Students will be responsible for their behaviour when using the Internet. This includes resources they access and the language they use.

  • Unacceptable use of School technology and resources may be summarised as, but not restricted to:
  1. Creating, displaying or transmitting material that is fraudulent or otherwise unlawful, likely to cause offence or inappropriate

Students are personally responsible and accountable for all activities carried out under their username. The password associated with a particular personal username must not be divulged to any other person.

  • Students should wait for their turn and do not interrupt classmates in a live classroom/video conference. We all have to be a little more patient while others are expressing their ideas.
  • Students found copying or plagiarizing will face the consequences. Assignments have to be done on time and the students have to do it on their own.

  • It is essential that students are aware of e-safety and know how to stay safe when using any ICT. Parents should talk with their children about safe and appropriate Web sites and activities.

It gives me immense pleasure to have both my children as a part of this school. The thing I liked the most is that the school is ready to provide support and solve issues if any. It facilitates adequate importance on co-curricular activities along with academics.

I am a proud parent of two Vikasians who are being moulded beautifully by the school. This is a place where my children are learning more than just academics. I must admit that the extra- curricular activities which are part of the curriculum helped to build their social and communication skills. I am happy that this year Vikas has moved a step further to keep the parents updated through their portal and mobile apps. I am very grateful to the dedicated teachers and staff and pray for the school. I wish that the school continues to give the BEST and bring out the BEST.

My daughter had an incredible lifetime journey at Vikas The Concept School from her Pre Primary, LKG, till her Higher Secondary, 12th. The school has been majorly responsible for her being groomed into a beautiful personality. I remain indebted to the institution for having made her what she is TODAY.

Vikas has played a crucial role in teaching and shaping the lives of the students. Vikas offers an excellent platform for every child to thrive not only in academics but also in various co-curricular activities. Vikas has everything that any parent looks for in a school- visionary management, qualified and empathetic teachers, exposure to various co-curricular activities, and, most importantly, a conducive environment for the development of their wards.
