The Deer Park Primary School in Derbyshire has a BYOD policy that applies to both staff and pupils.
- Uses of mobile phones in school
- Access to school internet and IT systems
- The security of staff's personal devices
The Weald Community School in West Sussex has a BYOD agreement for pupils. They're also expected to follow the school's home school agreement, ICT acceptable use and anti-bullying policy.
