Students’ Online Safety
GIPA has been a pioneer for many years in providing students with safe use of technology through:
– A powerful up-to-date firewall software
– The use of device enrollment programs that allow full control over the students’ iPads. These programs prevent access to the age or culture inappropriate websites and the download of unauthorized applications
– The design and consistent implementation of clear and comprehensive IT Policies and Procedures which describe the acceptable use of technology
– Training sessions and audiovisual resources for staff, students and parents on acceptable use of technology and on protection of cyberbullying
More details are included in the Student Handbook which includes the School Policies and Student Code of Conduct available to registered students, their parents and school staff on the school portal at portal.gipa.ae and the GIPA mobile application.
