    We used to ban their accounts, when they did anything bad, anything from a week to a month, it depended upon whether we recognised them or not. But they just stopped coming to ask us for their access, as we would let them on for the IT lessons, etc.

    So we switched, instead we banned their account, when they came to see us, we gave them the three page AUP, which they had to hand write, and bring back the next day (on the principle they would read it), at which point we would re-enable their account.

    And them some stupid annoying girl complained we were picking on her, as we kept blocking her for surfing on commerce sites (she was looking at clothes/holidays etc, so nothing work related). As a consequence of this, we were ordered (by the Head), to stop banning them, as IT use was supposed to be an integral part of the curriculum...

    So, now, we have a semi-automated system that emails the Key Stage leader, every time they do something wrong, this is currently done by an IT person who is retiring in December, so once he goes, no-one wil do it, at this point I'm going to have to look at Securus, or similar.
