West Midlands UTC recognises that technology and its use in the modern workplace is well-established and that technology is a valuable productivity tool. As an organisation, we embrace the use of technology to support all that we do with students. Like any tool, it is essential that those using it are well trained to ensure their continued safety. At WMUTC, we approach this training through our Self & Society curriculum as well as at induction.
Before allowing students to make use of our ICT facilities, all students and parents are required to read and sign the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) which can be opened below. There are several other resources below which we hope you find useful.
When at school, students and staff can enjoy a filtered and monitored internet connection. Where monitoring identifies someone who may be vulnerable, this is passed to the Safeguarding team to provide the necessary support and training and, where appropriate, parents will be informed.
The following websites offer valuable guidance with regard to E-Safety:
