Junior School Policy
Sorry if this is repeated elsewhere. I'm the NM of a Junior School ~300 users, ~100 machines. I'm in the process of putting together a Network Ops Manual containing the following:
- Staff AUP
- Pupil AUP
- Data Backup Policy
- Asset Management Policy
- AD Diagrams (Visio)
- Physical Building Plan (Switch Locations, Cable Runs, etc)
- IT Disaster Recovery Plan
- Server Roles
- IP Addressing/DHCP Scopes
- WiFi Infrastructure/Coverage
- Key Contacts/Suppliers for Emergency
Have I missed anything out here? Anything I should add?
Cyberbullying policy and data protection policies are two of the most important ones you have missed out.
Sounds a stupid question, but what else should be in the Data Protection Policy except for "don't remove personal data from site in an unsecured form"
DP policy in the Wiki, but it will need to be reviewed come August / September when new guidance comes out from Becta (ie directly to schools) and from LAs
Probably worth me waiting 'til September for the Data Protection Policy then.
As far as Cyberbullying is concerned, should the NM be writing that or should it come from the ICT Curriculum Manager?
Depends in a junior school would say be combo of both of you.
But remember all policies have to be approved by head and signed off by the governors.
Cyberbullying should be written by the person who also writes the bullying policy ... but there should be significant input from both you and the head of Curriculum ICT.
Bullying is a society issue, it just happens that it is made possible by technology.
School Policies - EduGeek.net Wiki
Theres all the policies i have put into the wiki so far might come in useful.
As GD said the DP policy will be updated around Aug/Sept
