Any student who wishes to use a personally owned electronic device within the bounds of the school site must read the guidelines below:

  • The student takes full responsibility for his or her device and keeps it with himself or herself at all times or locked away.

  • Whilst NSG provides lockable lockers for students, it is not responsible for the security of the device. The student is responsible for the proper care of their personal device, including any costs of repair, replacement or any modifications needed to use the device at school.

  • We do not currently offer a scheme where students can purchase devices through the school. NSG reserves the right to inspect a student’s personal device if there is reason to believe that the student has violated schools policies, BYOD Student Agreement , E-Safety Policy for Parents and Carers (Acceptable Use Policy), administrative procedures, school rules or has engaged in other misconduct while using their personal device.

  • Violations of any school policies, administrative procedures or school rules involving a student’s personally owned device may result in the loss of use of the device in school and other sanctions.

  • The student complies with teachers’ request to shut down the computer or close the screen or put the device away. Personal devices shall be charged prior to bringing it to school and shall be capable of running off its own battery whilst at school.

  • Laptops will be updated with the latest security measures, including antivirus and firewall software. Seek support from the ICT technicians if unsure.

  • The student may not use the devices to record, transmit or post photos or video of a person or persons on site unless directed to do so and under supervision from a teacher. Nor can any images or video recorded at school be transmitted or posted at any time without the express permission of a teacher.

  • The student should only use their device to access relevant files, programs and/or applications. The student will only use the assigned wireless network 'BYOD' . Students using personal 3G & 4G wireless connections should be aware that we are unable to filter or monitor connections under the Acceptable Use Policy and that they should seek advice from their mobile provider to ensure that their device is protected according to age / e-safety requirements.
