Mobile Device Policy at Caldicott

6th Form

6th Form boarders are allowed the following electronic devices after mock exams in the spring term and in the summer term provided they adhere to the following criteria:

  • No device capable of connecting to a telephone or 3G/4G network (even if no SIM card is present) – only WiFi
  • Screen should be no bigger than 10.1 inches
  • Not a laptop
  • No Smart watches

Approved Devices:

  • Apple iPad/iPod (any generation, including Mini) – WiFi only versions
  • Android-based devices
  • Kindle (all non-3G/4G versions) and Fire – although older versions may not be able to connect to our WiFi

If there is a device that fits the criteria and you believe it should be on the list, please e-mail Stuart Brown ([email protected]) to check before purchasing or bringing it into school. If a non-permitted device is brought into school it will be confiscated and kept in the School Office for collection by the parent/guardian.
