All students using an iPad at school need to have their own Apple ID 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’ (please see Apple support with this below) and ‘Apple IDs for Students’ created by schools. *It is vital that our students have their own Apple ID (NOT one that belongs to a parent). Please create their Apple ID using a free iCloud account (NOT their school email) . Please set it up using an iTunes card NOT attached to a credit card. Use the students own name and details EXCEPT their birthday (use a parents). *If your son/daughter is under 13 years of age, as the parent/guardian creating the account on their behalf, you will need to enter in your date of birth here, as Apple’s rules state that for children under 13, their ID should be in the name of the parent’. This can be modified once they reach 13 years old.
