  • 1. Thursday, 31 January 2013 Higher-Order Thinking Afternoon (HOTA): “Bring Your Own Device”Dear Parent/carer,As a creative, forward thinking school we are continually looking for ways to trial‘cutting edge’ innovations in education. Having invested heavily in a high speedwireless network at Chad Vale we are keen to find new ways to exploit this facilityand although we have purchased a bank of laptops that use our wirelessnetwork, there is great capacity for further use.Many pupils at home now own a ‘device’ that allows them to access learningresources on the internet; an iPod touch, iPad, Nintendo DS, laptop or mobilephone. We believe that these resources could help improve and enhancelearning in school.We have been trialling a new system, where pupils are allowed to bring their owndevice into school and use it to support their learning in Day a Week School. It’sbeen a great success and we’d now like to offer this facility for pupils in Y5 and 6on Wednesdays. Internet enabled devices will be set to join our school wirelessnetwork which would enable safe, filtered web access in school. We would alsouse the additional functionality of the devices; email, camera for photos/videos,sound recorders, ‘apps’ etc to enhance the exciting learning during Higher OrderThinking Afternoon (more information on newsletter this Friday!)If your child brings their own device into school we will do our utmost to keepthem safe- devices will be stored in a locked cabinet within the classroom and willnot be allowed out at playtime or dinnertime. Unfortunately, any devices broughtinto school will be ‘at your own risk’, the school’s current financial position is notable to fund the replacement of any device lost, broken or stolen- sorry! Wewould strongly recommend that you arrange insurance cover for any devicethrough your home and contents insurance- you may already have this.If you would like your child to be able to bring their own device on Wednesdays,could you please carefully read the Acceptable Use Policy attached and share itwith your child, and then sign and return the agreement form.Kind regards,Deputy Head Teacher
