We are alert to the role of information technology in education, and at this stage we have no plans to see all pupils equipped with a laptop or similar device, rather we will use school-owned technology in school as fits with lesson requirements. As such, as the school opens students will not be able to bring in laptops. However, if there is a genuine educational reason why they are needed – for example a special education need for an individual which means that a laptop is required, or if required for the sixth-form curriculum in due course – then, of course, this will be allowed.
