Digital Strategy

Parent Week

Day 1

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please find above a link to explain how the iPad strategy at KSS will ignite the creativity in each one of our students and why we believe this will make a tremendous impact on their progress in lessons.

 

Day 2

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please click here for frequently asked questions around the iPad launch at KSS.  Students will begin their digital journey on the 28.9.21 when the iPads are distributed.  The FAQ's should answer most of the questions that you may have.

 

Day 3

Dear Parents/Carers,

Please find a link below to an article about the differences between a laptop and an iPad that makes interesting reading.  KSS will be launching the iPads on Tuesday (28.9.21) to all students through assemblies.
There will be no expectation for students to start using iPads until Monday (4.10.21) so please encourage them to use them at home in the meantime.

Dear Parents/Carers,
