Code of Conduct
You have all agreed to the SHHS Code of Conduct.
This does not just cover the things you might do in your lessons at school on a computer.
The Code also extends to include any behaviour that might harm or upset yourself, other members of the SHHS community or the reputation of the school itself.
You should not post any pictures of yourself or your friends which would make your school identity known.
The full wording is printed in your school diary/planner.
You all have your own unique username. You will need to remember it as you will not be able to log on to the school network without it.
The format for your username is SOU + first 4 characters of surname + initial + number
For example, if your name was Daisy Smith, your username would be sousmitd1. Your username is not case sensitive.
You should never log on using another student's username!
You should never tell anyone else your password
Your password needs to be at least 8 characters long and include at least 1 number and 1 capital letter. You can not reuse an old password.
Your school email address is initial.surname@SHHS.GDST.NET, for example, d.smith@SHHS.GDST.NET
You can set up your Edmodo username to be whatever you like; it has to be something:
a) You can remember easily
b) You will not be totally embarrassed by as you move on to year 8 and beyond!
You may also be given subject specific username and passwords for sites like 'My Maths' or 'Code Academy'.
