Mobile Devices

From Year 5 onwards pupils can choose to bring an Android or iOS tablet into school as an aid to their lessons.


Devices must first be enrolled in the Academy Mobile Device Management (MDM) system which allows them to be connected to our filtered & monitored Internet provision - this system also allows us to put in place certain restrictions to prevent the use of unsuitable for school apps and features whilst on school grounds.

At the beginning of Year 5 all pupils receive instructions, via their Academy E-mail account, that explain how to go about preparing their device for use in school should they wish to do so.

Android tablets must be running a minimum of Android 5 (Lollipop), however we strongly recommend as new a version as possible.

iOS tablets must be running a minimum of iOS 9, however we do again strongly recommend as new a version as possible.
