1-1 Device Scheme

1-1 Scheme

Caludon Philosophy

To create an environment where learning is fluid between home and school through the effective, appropriate and consistent use of technology to enhance and transform learning opportunities 

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the parental survey, we are delighted to announce that Caludon will be implementing a 1:1 device scheme for the upcoming Year 7. As part of this exciting development there is an expectation that all Year 7 students will use a Caludon iPad within school. This will ensure that the students are in the best possible place to access the new innovations in learning. 

This will be an exciting opportunity to further integrate creative and inspiring approaches to learning and help students develop independence and a life long love of learning.

What will the cost of the device be?

£12.85 per student, per month for 36 months 

What is included for this cost?

  1. 10.2 Inch Wi-Fi iPad 32GB- Space Grey
  2. Insurance compatible Origami Shield Case
  3. Full Insurance
  4. Full school management and iPad updates including Office 365

How do I find out more about the benefits of this scheme?

Victoria McManus, Deputy Headteacher and Alex Handy, Trust Lead for Digital Literacy will be providing more information at the Year 7 virtual parents evening on Monday 12 July.
