Even if your child is using an iPad purchased outside if the school scheme, we will need to enrol devices into the school's management system. The first part of this process is known as 'Supervision'. This gives us additional functionality allowing us to remotely install apps and clear forgotten passcodes etc. This will also allow staff to use Apple's new teaching tools to enhance learning in the classroom.
Supervision can only be carried out on a fresh iPad so if your child's iPad has already been set up and used we will need to reset it. This will wipe all content and data from the device. If you wish to save any data please see the instructions below for common items. If you are concerned about losing data which is not mentioned below pelase ask your child to discuss this with ICT Support when they hand in their iPad.
Your photo library can be stored in iCloud rather than on the device, allowing you to access it from any Apple device signed in to your iCloud account. To turn on this feature go into Settings > Photos & Camera. You will need to turn this feature back on once the iPad has been enrolled to retrieve your photos.
