Payment Options

This is a parental contribution scheme, meaning the devices remain the property of the school, but with pupils gaining exclusive use of the device for the period shown, including being able to use it in lessons and outside of school.

You will not own the device. 

You can choose to pay a monthly amount to spread the cost, or a one off upfront payment for the length of the scheme term. No credit checks are required, and no interest is chargeable. However, if you choose the monthly option, it will cost you more - as additional insurance and management costs are required of the school.

You can pay a final amount to own the device 

If you wish to keep the device at the end, you can pay a final amount and own it, with the device reset to factory standards. The Warranty will only be valid for 3 years from date of the scheme starting, and the Accidental Damage and Theft Insurance, and the Concero Support both cease when the device ownership has transferred.

What if I can't afford the payments in the future?

Please contact the school as soon as possible to discuss your options. We may be able to offer flexible payment options to cover the outstanding amount.

Ordering and Delivery

All orders are subject to availability, and confirmation of delivery dates once the ordering period has ended. Our aim is to get devices for all delivered to students by October 2024, with priority being years 10 through 13 in line with their upcoming exams. 

Our current expectations are that Yr 7 will be available for students from October 24 and Years 10,11,12,13 from September 24.

You won't be charged your first payment until your child has their device.

You will not be charged when you place your order, please sign up for the direct debit for payment to be taken (if you have chosen the single payment method, your payment will be taken by a single direct debit when you have had the device)

 

Frequently Asked Questions

When will payments be taken?

  • Once your child has received the device.

Do I need credit checks or a good credit rating?

  • This is not a credit agreement, and such no credit checks are required.

Will I own the device?

  • You will only own the device if you pay the additional cost to own amount listed at the end of the scheme. The device is then wiped and reset for you.
  • All devices that you are not paying to own must be returned to the school at the end of the scheme.

Why is the device cheaper to buy outright then pay monthly?

  • The costs associated with providing the scheme are reduced as there is no need for additional insurance and collecting/managing payments when a single payment is made.

Why is the single payment less as the term of the scheme decreases?

  • Accidental Damage and Theft insurance, licences and support costs are only valid for the length of the scheme, so with shorter lease durations, the cost is reduced.


I can get the device cheaper from another retailer

  • This scheme includes full technical support, warranty, insurance, software, monitoring and internet filtering that is not available elsewhere, in a comprehensive bundle.
  • For years 8, 9, 10 & 11 aside from existing school provided Chromebooks, no other devices are allowed within school. This is for security and safeguarding of our network and students.

Can I install my own software on the device?

  • No, the devices will be fully managed by the school. They will come with all the software required for children to learn. You will be able to access the internet and printers when at home - but neither are provided by the school.


Will this work if I don't have the internet?

  • Whilst the devices for work with limited options in an offline scenario, the internet is required to utilise the devices to their full potential.

Will the school/Concero be able to see what I am doing?

  • Yes, internet requests are logged and are passed through school filters to safeguard students
  • The device will have safeguarding software in place, if certain phrases or keywords are detected, a screen shot is logged and sent to the school.

Will I have admin credentials?

  • No, the device is fully managed by the school
  • If you purchase the device at the end of the scheme, it will be as if it were brand new out the box, with all software and limitations removed.

Why do I have to give my direct debit details for a single payment?

  • Because you won't make your first payment until you have the device, a single direct debit will be taken upon you getting the device. No further payments will be taken.

Will I own the device if I make all monthly payments or a one off payment?

  • No, you must make the additional final payment detailed to own the device. All other devices must be returned to the school.
