This page contains information and useful links, specifically for our ISP students.

We want all ISP students to enjoy coming to school – we want you to have fun. Of course, you are also here to learn, so here are some basic guidelines and information to help you.

Our Golden Manners
Student Code of Conduct
Student Use of Technology

Responsible and Respectful use of Technology (Primary / Secondary)

School Calendar  

If you subscribe to the school calendar, you always know what’s going on and it will help you to be more independent. Instructions are here. Or you could download the yearly overview – to check when your next holiday will be!

Technology  

From Year 3 and above, all students have a personal iPad, ISP email address and Google Drive account. All students from Yr10 upwards have a personal laptop. You have the responsibility of using these technologies correctly, safely and respectfully. Please read the Family Media Agreement with your parents and review it annually. Primary / Secondary

Access your email and Google Drive by signing in at google.com. Enter your full email address (the one that ends in isp.edu.my) and your password. You will need to change your password occasionally.

iPad Apps  

Your school iPad must have all of the essential apps that are listed here. Please check it at the start of every school year to keep up to date.

Laptops  

Towards the end of Year 9 many students are thinking about purchasing a laptop to use in Key Stage 4 and beyond. There are so many varieties it’s often difficult to know where to start. Here’s our advice on choosing a laptop.

Library  

Destiny Quest allows students to search for books by name, author, genre etc, and reserve books that are currently on loan. Read or write reviews, make recommendations, and discover the most popular book, or the latest arrivals. Sign in here.

Communication  

Teachers of students in KS2 and above will often send emails with important information. It is essential to check. Make sure you have the Gmail app on your homepage (or Dock) and that it shows notifications for your ISP account.

Older students regularly use Google Classroom. Lesson resources, homework assignments and useful course information is available here. Use the app on your iPad or create a link to classroom.google.com on your laptop.

FlexiBuzz is the app we use to communicate information to your parents. You are welcome to use this if you want. Ask your parents for details.
