The following are a list of apps that are explicitly not permitted to be installed on the iPads that are loaned to learners for the period of time they are at Honywood School. This is NOT an exhaustive list of apps that are non-educational, it is a list of apps that we have experience of and feel that the potential for abuse outweighs any potential educational benefit. We ask that parents/carers work with us in ensuring that we are aware of any other apps that could be added to this list and that your learner abides by this requirement. As a parent/carer, or a concerned learner, you should never feel that you cannot remove any non-educational apps from your learner’s iPad whether or not it appears on this list. For dialogue around the apps, please email [email protected] where we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
