The selected devices for 2019 are the Acer c731, Lenovo 100e and HP11 G6 Chromebooks. Families are now invited to purchase a device through a vendor of their choosing, as the school will no longer be facilitating the sale of these devices. We highly recommend opting for the 4GB ram option for the selected models as this ensures that the device loads quickly to ensure a minimum of delay for your child.
If you are not sure which device from the above to opt for, the school will be purchasing the Acer c731. Please note all previous years selected models will still be allowed.
BYOD is an option for families but is not a requirement. Students of families who choose not to purchase a Chromebook will have a school Chromebook to use during the school day instead, so they will have the same access as all other students in the class.
You are also now able to purchase a Chromebook throughout the year at any time of your choosing. Drop off with the BYOD agreement signed and we will have it set up the next time our ICT technician is available.
We have a range of documents below that outline the organisation and thinking around our BYOD programme.
If you have any queries about our BYOD programme please email our ICT team leader - Jolene Butson-Leggett - at firstname.lastname@example.org.
