Programme Information

All students from Years 6 to 9 will have an iPad as their core Information Communication Technology (ICT) to support learning at school and home.  The iPad’s compact design, long battery life, accessibility, ease of use and functionality make it an ideal tool to facilitate learning in an information-rich environment.

Responsibilities

Students

Students will be responsible for ensuring that:

  • they use the device in accordance with school rules, policies and procedures as well as expected standards
  • they have their iPad with them in class
  • there is always space on the iPad for the storage of school-related files
  • the device is charged
  • device has the required apps installed and texts available
  • problems or damage are promptly reported to IT Support
  • theft is reported immediately to SAPOL and the school

Students are permitted to place music, take pictures etc on the iPad with the expectation that:

  • content inappropriate for school and learning should not be on any iPad as per the KICE ICT – Acceptable Use Policy
  • space is left in the memory for files for school-work

Students who fail to meet their responsibilities in regard to their iPad will be dealt with via the schools’s discipline system.  Students will be instructed to delete apps used inappropriately while at school.

Students will store their iPad in their school provided locker or classroom when not in use.

Parents / Carers

When the iPad is not at school, parents/carers will need to support their children in the device’s use and care.

Families can decide whether to insure their child’s iPad.  Please consult your insurance broker.

Staff

As is the case in all facets of life at school, our staff will endeavour to support students in their development of responsible behaviour and actions.
