Please note: the iPad scheme will not run for any further year groups. Please see details of our Chromebook scheme here.
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.
Please note: iPads must have a case and screen protector in place in order to be covered under our insurance policy. To avoid having to pay repair charges, please ensure the protector is not removed under any circumstances.
Creating an Apple ID
For pupils we have created managed Apple IDs which give access to the essential iCloud services. However, these cannot be used to purchase apps. All apps essential for school working will either be installed automatically or available through our internal App Portal.
In years 9 above above:
If you do wish to allow your child to download or purchase additional apps you will need to create a personal Apple ID to use in the App Store. The following instructions will guide you through creating an Apple ID without the requirement of a credit card or other payment method.
