Frequently asked questions about the scheme.
My child’s iPad is damaged, what do I do?
As part of the iPad Insurance policy, in the unfortunate event that the student’s iPad/Apple lightning lead/Apple charger unit is damaged or stolen, the insurance company requires that an insurance claim be filled out and submitted within ten days of the incident. Please use the Parent Portal. To make a claim use the Parent Portal and click on Make a Claim.

What apps are currently banned by the college?
To ensure the safety of our students within the college and online, particular social media apps have been judged as unsafe for use in the academy as they provide various different communications such as multi-user video chat, sharing photos and social media. For example, Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram and Snapchat.
