    The ones that understand, and ask for access, we give read-only access. There's not much need for them to have access, we have a shared drive, with a folder in which students can place files, where the staff can also read.

    Only ICT Support get write access to user drives.

    All our teaching staff get access to read (only) a students home directory. Not many of them use it though...and we don't create shortcuts for them to access the drives - when they ask if they can do it, we tell them how using Run

    a few have come up to me recently and asked about it,
    ict co-ord has got modify rights as it makes it much easier for her to transfer work into student accounts to then simply load up, plus she can monitor accounts for inappropriate files which helps me out,
    so ye think the ones that have asked can have just read only rights as we all know they are so good at not leaving their account unattended

    All teaching staff (& classroom support staff) have read access to student folders via a shortcut. We do not allow modify access (except when SMT insist).

    It is not widely used, most staff are surprised when they find out they can access student work.

    This very much depends on whether you are primary or secondary. Our oldest kids are 11 and the youngest (that have logons) are 4... our staff have modify on all pupil home-drives.

    In secondary, it's an entirely different story. Exam boards take a very dim view of teachers being able to change pupils' coursework. Having the ability to do so and saying "but they'd never do it" isn't good enough.

    I would have thought that read access was the maximum you could give, but whatever you do this must be a SMT decision, not yours. If brown stuff hits the fan, make sure that the decision has come from the top... you have to advise them of the pros and cons though!

    All our ICT Teachers/support and SMT have a read/write access to all students home drives. The rest of the staff have read-only access. The rest of the staff used the shared drive created for Teachers to post and student to read only.

    Our staff have read only access. I don't really ever see the need for staff to have write access. There is no benefit, only the risk of abuse.

    We have full access to ALL teachers to student directories - not that it is used much. The reasoning is that the student drive is for school use only, and there should not be anything that staff cant have access to.

    Responsability is also given to Head's of Year, to check that no inapropriate files are stored in the student directories. (not that they really do it - but that is the theory)

    We had it like this for the past few years, with NO problems.

    We do have other shared directories where classes and year groups can share data, as well as teacher / student share space, were teachers can post file that students can only read / copy if needed.

    My staff didn't even have read access.

    It's the students responsibility to hand in work, and the teachers responsibility to make sure they do so....they'll have a shock come college/uni if they don't get used to it.

    As a general rule of thumb no teachers have access to student home folders, except in the case of IT teachers if they need to see students digital work. Even then they have to request the Principal who makes the decision with me.
