Chromebook Scheme

1-2-1 Device loan scheme at Wilmington Academy

When you join the academy, students are provided with a chromebook. We believe that having the use of a Chromebook in the academy and being able to take the device home is invaluable in supporting your son/daughter in their studies throughout their education at Wilmington Academy. 

These devices are pre-enrolled and labelled with the students’ names. The loan will end at the end of year 9 when these devices will be recalled and new devices allocated, which will remain with the student until the end of year 11.

This is a loan agreement and at no point will students be able to purchase the device.

Voluntary contribution scheme

If you would like to voluntarily contribute to this scheme, we will really welcome the gesture. ​To do this you can make a payment by using ParentPay – payment description: Year 7 1-2-1 chromebook scheme.  Donations can be as little as £5 per module or a one off donation of £30 per year.

Student Responsibilities

  • Students will be expected to bring the Chromebook to the academy each day fully charged for use in lessons.
  • Students will use  their best endeavours to look after the device and not accessorise or otherwise alter the appearance of the Chromebook in any way. 
  • Students will be able to continue with online work from home in the case of any periods of absence from the academy.
  • Students should only use the Chromebooks in classes for class activities as directed by a teacher and for no other purpose.
  • Any and all damage to the Chromebook must be reported on the day of or next academy day.

Parent/Carer Actions

  • We ask that all parents take a National Online Safety course to ensure that the risks of online use are clearly understood. Information can be found on our website at the following link.
  • The Chromebook is fully insured BUT you may be asked to pay an excess via ParentPay each time the insurance policy is activated e.g. for damage or theft.
  • A charger lead will be provided with the Chromebook however this is not covered by the insurance policy so must remain at home. If the charger lead were to become lost or broken it will be necessary for you to purchase a replacement.
  • We strongly recommend that you purchase a Chromebook cover/case to protect the device and also ensure your child has a school bag big enough to carry the Chromebook and all the usual school equipment to and from the academy each day.
