Parental Controls

After successful trials and in order to support our students, iPads in our 1:1 scheme will have some school management restrictions lifted at the weekends and during school holidays. In order that we are continuing to safeguard students, some restrictions will still be maintained, for example, social media apps and inappropriate web content will still be unavailable.

As a parent/carer, the responsibility for the use of the iPad will become yours. You will have the ability to control what apps are downloaded, the amount of time students can use the iPad for specific apps or altogether. It is easy to set up and can be controlled on any mobile phone (iPhone or android), or on the
web.

We recommend that you set up the JAMF parent controls prior to the end of term to allow the opportunity for any technical difficulties to be resolved. Please email helpdesk@caludoncastle.co.uk for technical support.

A reminder that the only way students can download apps themselves is by putting in their ‘home’ Apple ID in the app store, rather than their assigned school one. If you would like the student to be able to make a purchase, either in app or on the app store, the Apple ID would need to be linked to a payment method. This is not a facility we set up for students and their Caludon Apple ID does not allow purchases to be made.
