There is an issue with the iPad power adapter and / or lightening cable
Power adapters and their cables are covered under Apples limited warranty for the first twelve months, as long as there is no damage other than wear and tear.
You will need to contact Apple and they will repair or exchange the equipment at no cost. For more information, please click here.

My Son / Daughter already owns an iPad
Students who already have an iPad will be allowed to use them at the academy but parents/carers need to be aware that they may be constrained by the filtering system that we have to use. Due to safeguarding procedures these iPads would have to be blanked and set up by the school (although you would still be able to re download any purchased Apps you have already bought). The owned iPad should also not be more than one year old. We also recommend that you take out insurance, which can be purchased if you wish through the scheme.
Staying Safe Online
We will be running a session about staying safe online, but for more tips please see our staying safe online section of the website.
