No! Ealing Council has authorised online lessons on condition that only council-owned-and-managed iPads be used. Staff that choose to infringe this requirement may be putting themselves at risk.
We are aware that some teachers would like to use peripheral equipment that is not supported by iPads, however, we don’t require professional quality presentations. We do require you to deliver lessons using excellent teaching strategies and pedagogical practice, for which, an iPad is adequate.
Also, Online lessons may need to be delivered from school premises (eg to bubble groups that are isolating) and this approach reduces the need to travel with additional IT equipment over and above that issued by EMS.
