Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
For Personal Learning Device & School ICT Resources
Computing devices and access to the Internet have become a necessity for work, play and learning in the 21st century. As you navigate the digital space, you should do so in a safe and responsible manner. More information can be found in the “Student Kit on Cyber Wellness and Learning with a Personal Learning Device”.
In addition, you are reminded to observe the guidelines stated in this Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) on the use of personal learning devices (PLDs) and the school’s ICT resources. ICT resources include the following, but are not limited to, MOE/school-deployed ICT system accounts, the device management application (DMA) and school’s internet network.
- You are responsible for your PLD. In the event of loss or theft of the device, you must make a police report and report the matter to the school.
- In order to have a seamless learning experience, you should ensure that your PLD is fully charged before bringing it to school. Seek a teacher’s permission if you need to charge your device in school.
- All PLDs are installed with a device management application (DMA) to support a safe and conducive learning environment. You should not attempt to uninstall the DMA or de-enroll the PLD from the DMA. Non-compliance may lead to disciplinary action in accordance with the school’s discipline policy.
- You should not attempt to access data, system and information that you are not authorised to.
- You are reminded that the use of PLDs and school’s ICT resources should solely be for the purpose of learning.

- make threats, cause harassment or embarrassment, impersonate or intimidate others.
- You should not use MOE/school-deployed ICT system accounts for any commercial activities (g. buying and selling of goods and services).
