St John’s School P6 iPad Project – School Agreement

The St John’s Primary School iPad scheme will provide every P6 pupil with an iPad to assist and enhance their learning at school.

All parties involved (pupils, parents/carers and the school) must agree with all of the terms and conditions outlined below.

As a pupil, I agree to:

· Look after my iPad carefully at all times

· Always store my iPad in its supplied case when not in use.

· Only take my iPad out in class – never in the playground.

· Only use my iPad in lessons when instructed to by my teacher and close it or put it away when my teacher says so

· Only use programs on my iPad that my teacher has agreed I can use in the lesson

· Only use my iPad to record audio or video clips with the clear and explicit permission of everyone involved in the recording

· Never access inappropriate content on my iPad

· Not remove any security markings and not allow it to be subject to graffiti

· Immediately report any damage, loss or theft which happens in school to Ms Mitchell or Miss Sinclair.

· Report any technical problems to Ms Mitchell or Miss Sinclair.

As a parent/carer, I agree to:

· Encourage my child to care for and respect their iPad in class.

The school agrees to:

· Provide each pupil with an iPad and access to a range of e-Learning resources

· Provide pupils with a range of learning opportunities which make use of the iPad in school.

· Make sure that the iPad is working and that any repairs are dealt with as quickly and effectively as possible

· Give pupils an introduction to using and caring for the iPad. This will include a session on security, e-Safety, maintenance and health and safety

· Provide wireless access to the Internet across the whole school site.

· Issue questionnaires to pupils and parents/carers to help us in our ongoing evaluation of the project

Acceptable Use

We expect all parties concerned (pupils, parents/carers and the school) to follow all the rules and procedures listed on pages 1 and 2. If, however, a pupil breaks these rules then the school reserves the right to restrict or remove their access to any school ICT facility. Specifically in this case:

· If a pupil persistently refuses to follow a teacher’s instructions or stay on task, they may be told to put their iPad away and work from a book/paper for the rest of the lesson

· If a pupil accesses the Internet inappropriately, they may be banned from accessing the Internet in school for a period of time. Parents/carers will be notified if this happens

· In extreme cases, if a pupil persistently or seriously misuses their iPad, it will be removed from them by a member of the Senior Leadership Team or Support for Pupils’ staff for a period of time. If this happens parents/carers will be invited in to help the school resolve this matter
