Information for Parents
Privacy & Apple devices
Privacy is a fundamental human right, so every Apple product is built from the ground up to protect personal information and give every customer the choice to decide who see's what. Privacy features and controls are built in to every iPad and Mac. Apple devices do not build profiles of students based on their web browsing, and they never sell or share student information for any purpose.
Apple introduced Managed Apple ID's for institution owned devices to allow the school to restrict or enable apps like Messages, FaceTime and limit access to the App Store, to comply with student data privacy requirements inline with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations).
A Managed Service
At KRCS we understand the importance of privacy and security which is why our Managed Service for schools supports and implements all of these features, including Managed Apple ID's, Device Enrolment and Lost Mode.
We work with schools to ensure the experience that students have with their device is underpinned by best in class Jamf Pro management tools and leveraging best practice from Apple.
KRCS can help ensure that the online safety rules applied in the classroom are also used when devices are browsing away from the school.
Many UK schools have improved learning outcomes by providing every student with an iPad, often partially funded by parental contribution. A low monthly subscription can include a rugged case, warranty and insurance in addition to the iPad itself to support personalised learning for every pupil.
Your child's progress
Seesaw, Showbie and Apple Schoolwork are assessment apps used in schools around the world. Some of these apps allow parents to login from home and see the learning journey and progress that their child is making. This can have a beneficial effect on the positive well being of both student and parent, shaping the culture of the learning environment.
