All Academy iPads are used in accordance with the Acceptable Use Policy, as tools to assist teaching and learning.
As part of this, there are conditions about which apps must be on all of the iPads at all times and which apps should not be.
All iPads MUST be connected to the Academy’s Meraki management system at all times with the school @mountsbay.org email set up according to the instructions supplied with the iPad. iPads must also be on the latest version of iOS8 or iOS9 at all times.
iPads not set up correctly will be removed until they can be configured correctly.
There are three types of apps that we allow on the iPads. Those that must always be on the iPad, those that are approved for use and those that are being tested. Any app with “(Testing)” before its name could be withdrawn, if we find that it damages the network.
Students are allowed NO messaging apps other than iMessage, FaceTime, Skype and Mail.
NO streaming media apps are allowed, including Netflix, iPlayer, 4OD, etc.
Meraki Systems Manager MUST be on the iPad at all times.
