BYOD Reminder

A quick reminder that tomorrow night we will be running a BYOD (Bring your own Device) information evening for parents to attend.

From January 2015, as a pilot in West Base and West Base 2 at Osprey Quay Campus, we would like to offer children the opportunity to ‘BYOD’.  Please be reassured that the ICT equipment we currently have in West Base (30 Chromebooks, 30 iPads) and West 2 (16 Laptops and 15 iPads) will stay within the base for children to use, regardless of whether they choose to bring in a device or not. To this end, there is no pressure for pupils to take part in this pilot, however, the opportunity exists for those that are interested in exploring this idea further.
If you would like to find out more, we encourage you to attend an information session on Thursday 6th November at 6pm in West Base or Friday 7th November at 2:30pm in the hall. At the session we hope to tell you a little more about our BYOD policy, the conditions under which they will be used in the base, and to answer any questions you as parents/carers might have.
