To ensure that our students get the most from their education it is essential that we all work together.
Our Home-School Agreement has been drawn up in consultation with parents, teachers, students and Trustees and it encourages everyone involved to contribute to making a child’s education a happy and successful one by setting out the roles and responsibilities of everyone in the partnership.
At Longdean, we believe that the success of our students – your children – is dependent on a good working relationship between home and school. We need your support to make it work.
Upon joining our school, you will be asked to read through the agreement with your child and confirm your consent by ticking the appropriate consent box within the Sims Parent Software /App Data Collection Tab.
You can review a copy of the Home School Agreement below.

Rules for Responsible ICT Use
This Responsible ICT Use statement helps to protect students, staff and the school by clearly stating what use of the computer resources is acceptable and what is not. ICT and the related technologies such as the internet and email are an important part of learning in our school.
Irresponsible use may result in the loss of Internet access.
Network access must be made via the user’s authorised account and password, which must not be given to any other person.
Use of School’s ICT system including Internet, email, digital video etc. use must be appropriate to the student's education or to staff professional activity.
Copyright and intellectual property rights must be respected.
Email should be written carefully and politely, particularly as messages may be forwarded or printed and be seen by unexpected readers.
Users are responsible for email they send and for contacts made and will not send material that could be considered offensive or illegal.
Anonymous use is not permitted.
The school ICT systems may not be used for private purposes, unless the Headteacher has given permission for that use.
Use for personal financial gain, gambling, political purposes or advertising is not permitted.
ICT system security must be respected; it is a criminal offence to use a computer for a purpose not permitted by the system owner.
These rules are designed to keep people safe and, if they are not followed, school sanctions will be applied and parents/carers may be contacted, which may lead to suspension from the system or exclusion from the school.
The ICT facilities are owned by the school. The school exercises its right to monitor the use of the school’s computer systems, including access to web-sites, the interception of email/electronic communication and the deletion of inappropriate materials where it believes unauthorised use of the school’s computer system is or may be taking place, or the system is or may be being used for criminal purposes or for storing unauthorised or unlawful content.
