The Crypt is pleased to offer parents of students in year 7 & 8 the option to opt into our iPad Scheme. This scheme allows students to use an iPad during the school day to enhance their learning and develop their academic ability. All staff also have iPads and have embedded them into lessons, to make them more engaging and interactive.
We have chosen the iPad based on three main reasons:
It is proven that the use of an iPad in the classroom allows a lesson to become personalised based on the students ability and needs. Students are also able to work at their own pace and review notes they make in lessons at home – without having the extra weight of exercise books.
The iPads allow our lessons to become more interactive, allowing every student, ether confident or not, to participate in a lesson and engage into class discussions.
Prepared for future careers:
According to surveys done by Open Colleges, 86% of students believe that tablets can help them study more effectively.
The use of technology in the classroom, allows students to learn fundamental IT skills that are now compulsory when searching for early employment.
Below are a series of help guides created by our IT Department to help students setting up their device.
All iPads are covered with Accidental Damage insurance with MendIT. Below are the insurence forms that must be completed by the parent if damage occurs to the device. All forms must be completed and handed in to the IT Department, before any replacement or repair work can happen to the device.
The Crypt School and MendIT Ltd reserve the right to refuse any insurance claim submitted, if the claim does not fall within the terms of cover under Accidental Damage.
The iPads insurance does not cover for theft, parents would need to claim on anoter insurnace if they have it.
The iPad cases are not covered by any insurance and cannot be replaced by the school.
