Chromebooks – New Timetable

Wednesday 1st June 2022

As students begin their new timetabled classes, we would like to remind all students that they should bring their Chromebooks with them every day. Chromebooks are an essential part of school kit and a vital resource for both in school and at home learning. In school, our staff prepare lessons that rely on all students having their devices charged and ready for use. When students forget their devices it means they often miss out of the benefits of planned learning. Furthermore, it often delays the start of the lesson for other students.

Chromebooks should be carried in their cases to prevent accidental damage and chargers should remain at home, if possible. Whilst we do allow students to charge their devices in school, this is not desirable as it often leads to misplaced chargers. If a student needs to charge their device during the day they can sign out a charger from student support. Chargers can be collected before the beginning of the school day, at breaktime or at lunch.

If a student repeatedly forgets their device, their parent/carer will be notified by email. If this issue is persistent, a parent/carer meeting may be required to identify appropriate actions to support a resolution. Over the next week, senior leaders will be visiting classes to ensure students have their devices with them, and notifying home where devices have been forgotten.

Students who do not have a Chromebook can sign up for one here, and any student who has an issue with their Chromebook should report to Mr Fulton, our Learning Technologist, to have the issue addressed.
