All students using an iPad at school need to have their own Apple ID (iCloud account) on their iPad so that they can utilise their own iCloud storage space (not sharing it with other family members) and take ownership of all their Apps, particularly those supplied by the school. Additionally, students should not be receiving messages or content intended for other family members. Children under 13 years of age are not allowed to create an Apple ID themselves. There are a number of ways that an Apple ID can be created for Primary school Children’s use including ‘Parent Managed Family Sharing’, and ‘Apple IDs for Students’ created by schools. We prefer that Parents create an individual Apple ID (iCloud Account) for their Child’s exclusive use. Parents are asked to setup their child’s Apple ID (iCloud account) using either; the Parent Managed Family Sharing which requires the Parent to own an iPhone or Apple device, or simply a credit-card free Apple ID as shown in the instructions that follow. For the Parent Managed Family Sharing information, please refer to the ‘Creating your Child’s Managed Apple ID using Family Sharing’ document. Creating a Credit Card Free Apple ID for Students
If the iPad is new or has been erased, turn it on and begin setting it up by carefully answering all the questions. If it is already setup, sign out of the App Store and sign out of iCloud, removing old content as necessary.
When you get to the iCloud account section, Tap ‘Create a New iCloud Account’ and create a new iCloud Apple ID for your child, eg, firstname.lastname@example.org. (NB. This may take a few attempts to get an available iCloud account-name, and the account name remains your child’s forever. It can’t be changed.) The Password must not be simple, be at least 8 characters, containing at least one CAPITAL letter and 1 digit. No recurring or sequential numbers, e.g. 123, or 222.
Note, that Parent’s own and can totally manage this account at least until your child turns 13 years old. You must complete all details, including YOUR (Parent’s) own Date- of-Birth.
3. If necessary, sign back into your iPad’s accounts; iCloud, Messages (optional), FaceTime (optional) and iTunes & App Store using the new iCloud Apple ID (eg, email@example.com). You are nearly there! 4. If you are not prompted to complete the account setup, launch the App Store app and attempt to download an app. You will be prompted to complete the setup of the account, which is a few more questions, noting that the Credit Card information must remain at ‘None’ (to ensure that it remains a credit card free Apple ID). 5. iCloud — Ensure that you at least enable iCloud Drive, Documents & Data, Safari, Notes and Find My iPad in the iCloud setup options!!
6. iTunes & App Store — Automatic App Updates should be enabled in the ‘iTunes & Apps Store’ settings.

Family Sharing Tips
Enabling Ask to Buy: Ask to Buy is a feature within Family Sharing that the organiser can enable in order to have the final say over what people under the age of 18 can buy. By default, it’s enabled for children under the age of 13. To enable the feature, simply go to Settings > iCloud > Family and tap the family member’s name before tapping Ask to Buy. If you turn this off after the member has turned 18, however, you can’t turn it back on.
Approving/Declining Ask to Buy requests: Once activated, the organiser will receive a notification when a member with Ask to Buy enabled tries to buy a piece of content or install an app. If the request is approved, the organiser will need to sign in using their Apple ID and password to finalize the purchase. Another member of the group can be given permission to manage Ask to Buy requests, but only one person needs to approve the requests for the purchase to be final. To give another person these privileges, go to Settings > iCloud > Family, tap your family member, then tap Parent/Guardian.
Parents can add additional family members as managers who can also approve downloads.
Children can additionally load iTunes Cards to their Apple ID account, but will still require the Family Managers to approve Purchases.
Parents can choose to replace their Credit Card with a Pre-Paid Debit Card after this setup has been completed. The Credit Card is a requirement of this setup as it is part of the Adult Identification.
Hiding app purchases: Apps are the only things that can be hidden using an iOS device. To hide an app, go to Updates >Purchases > My Purchases. Swipe left on the app you wish to hide, then tap Hide.
Hiding iTunes Store purchases: For iTunes, look at the top of the window and select Account > Family Purchases. Choose Music, Movies, TV Shows, Apps, or Audiobooks at the top of the window, and then click All to show all of your purchases. Hold your cursor over the item that you want to hide and click the “X” icon in the upper-left corner. Click Hide when prompted to confirm.
