What type of restriction does your school apply to teachers with respect to internet access? In our school, teachers have the same restrictions as pupils, which means no access to web mail or images. I have tried raising this with our network co- ordinator (not very helpful), who told me there was nothing he could do as this was "regional policy". I know other schools in the region have different levels of access for teachers and pupils, but the network co ordinator didn't believe me (or could not be bothered pursuing it for me, more likely). I've taken it up with SMT. So what happens in your school, are teachers treated like children when it comes to internet access, or are they given full access?
