(Ipad, tablet, laptop, phone, camera, electronic game device, etc.).
Unless specifically required for a particular activity that will run under close supervision, any
children bringing electronic devices to the sKids programme will be required to keep the
devices in their bags or in the programme cupboard. These will be securely stored at all
times during programme hours.
No child is to take a photograph of another child on a personal device without express
permission from both the child’s parents/caregivers and staff members.
When devices are in use for an authorised activity (eg, homework) staff will monitor the
child’s usage of the device. In the event that a child is found viewing an unauthorised site,
the incident will be recorded. If, at any time, a child is found to be viewing an inappropriate
site they will be prevented from using the device until further notice. The parents/caregivers
will be notified, and the child will be given a written notice about their behaviour. Full details
of the incident will be recorded and in the “child concerns” register if applicable.
Staff members are not to use any device during programme hours or while on school
premises unless for a particular authorised activity e.g. to access the Customer Care Management System. If
children or staff are accessing the internet for an authorised activity and this is through the
school Wi-Fi system, then school rules must be adhered to. A copy of the school internet
policy must be obtained when an agreement for use is reached.
Staff members are not to post photographs of sKids children or staff in uniform on their
personal Social Networking Sites nor post any comments relating to staff, children or
parents/caregivers. Staff members are to be mindful that their working life at sKids must be
kept separate from their personal life at all times. This is detailed in their Code of Conduct
