At Maidwell Primary School we take Online Safety very seriously. As such, we require ALL children to have considered and completed an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).

An AUP is simply a list of rules selected to protect the children from harm when online. These rules are a key part of the way we teach the children to be both safe and responsible when online.  

As an AUP can be a difficult concept to fully understand and also requires the support of parents, we ask that you consider the following rules that form our Children's AUP with your child at home. Once you are confident you and your child have understood the idea, please complete the entries below to register acceptance of our AUP.

In addition to the promises below, natterhub also has an acceptable use agreement. In order to login to natterhub, the natterhub agreement must be accepted and agreed to first and this is something your child will have done / will do in school the first time they use natterhub. The content of this agreement can be reviewed in the natterhub account. A parent's natterhub account can also be created to allow you to share your child's natterhub progress. Please ask if you do not have a natterhub parent account linked to your child's account.

Children are also able to use their natterhub account from home when the AUP below has been completed and accepted by school.
