Third Party (Online) Applications

Our school provides access to Department of Education online services. These enhance the contemporary learning opportunities available to students and the range of teaching tools available to staff to deliver the Western Australian Curriculum.

The Department’s online services currently provide students with access to:

• individual email and calendar accounts;
• the internet, with all reasonable care taken by central office and schools to monitor and control students’ access to
websites while at school;
• online teaching and learning services such as Connect, web-conferencing and digital resources;
• online file storage and sharing services; and
• these online services at locations other than school.

You should be aware that the Department has the right to review, audit, intercept, access and disclose messages created, received or sent over Department online services. Logs of email transactions and internet access data are kept for administrative, legal and security purposes and may be monitored. Similar to other corporate records, emails and internet access records are discoverable in the event of legal action and are subject to provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 1992. (

You should also be aware that general internet browsing not conducted via the Department’s network is not monitored or filtered by the Department. The Department encourages close family supervision of all internet use by children in locations other than school, and strongly recommends the use of appropriate internet filtering software. Advice on managing internet use at home can found on the Office of the E-Safety Commissioner website (

In line with the Students Online in Public School Policy, schools must notify parents/guardians of the third party applications used within curriculum programs. At times, parents/guardians may be required to give their explicit consent for students to utilise these third-party facilities.

There are many third party services being used in our school and consent is required by the parent/guarding. If consent is not given this may result in your child being provided alternative curriculum learning opportunities to their classmates.
