iPad Update April 2021
The iPad ordering portal has now closed. The next available opportunity to order an iPad will be June 2021 for August/September delivery.
The iPad will need setting up at home – just turn it on, connect it to your wifi and follow the steps on screen. Make sure your sign into the device with the same Apple ID as on the ‘old’ iPad so that your files and photos sync on your new iPad. This can take a few hours to complete.
Remember to sign in to our school apps: Showbie, Gmail, Google Classroom, Edulink etc.
If you need any help setting up your iPad, please email IT Support.
If you want to trade-in the old iPad
If you no longer want to keep the old iPad, you can trade-in the device for a cash value of up to £105, depending on the condition of the device. Freedom Tech work with a recycling company called CSI Lifecycle Services who will assess and decide on a buyback figure for the iPad. If you wish to proceed with the sale, money is transferred to school with a copy of the audit and value by device. We will then pass on the value of the iPad to parents.
iPads must have “Find my iPhone” and iCloud deactivated. If the Activation Lock is turned on, the product will have no recovery value. More information can be found here:
The deadline for trading in old iPads is Friday 30 April. Please drop the iPad off at main reception marked for the attention of Mr J Roper.
Removing our restrictions on the old iPad
If the old iPad is fully paid up, we are happy to remove our restrictions from the device and return it to its original factory settings. Please email IT Support if you would like us to do this.

Information for families who have chosen to opt out of the scheme
Our scheme is voluntary and whilst the very large majority of families are part of the scheme, parents can choose not to be involved if they wish. We have a number of iPads that can be borrowed from the library each day.
