Our Ks5 students are encouraged to bring in their own device to help with research. Their logon and password is the same as the one they use to log on to the school network. Any problems please call in to the I.T. Office.

Guidelines on using the network
At Tring School we want our students to develop in to responsible adults. We have in place a few guidelines to keep our students safe and to help them develop a responsible attitude when using I.T for their learning.
You may only use the school network, including e-mail, for school related work.
If you use the Internet inappropriately, for example:
- Playing games;
- Reading/writing personal e-mails during lesson;
- Accessing/searching inappropriate sites including e-bay, on-line music, msn, social networks etc.;
- Downloading software or music not requested by your teacher;
- Inappropriate language i.e. swearing or insults.
…your Teacher or Head of House will be informed
Please note any offence judged as serious or raises concerns for your safety, even if it is a first offence, will be referred directly to your Head of House or Mr Barlow.

The IT Systems Engineers and the teachers are able to monitor what you are doing on your computer and will apply sanctions if the systems are not used in accordance with your Lesson Plan.
Network Accounts (Username/password)
If you allow another pupil to use your username and password to log onto the network then both students will receive warnings. Using someone else’s account is a serious matter. Please note that in the business world using someone else’s network account can result in suspension or dismissal.
Always make sure you lock your computer when you get up from your table by clicking on the WINDOWS key + L, and to log off when you have finished using it.
