Accrington Academy iPad Scheme
For more information regarding iPads please refer to our iPad help and support documents.
Please note that the iPads are insured for theft but not loss.
We have recently had an increasing number of iPad claims. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure they prevent damage and use their iPad appropriately. All iPads should be kept in the protective case provided by the Academy. Any iPad submitted for repair without a case or due to an act of negligence or deliberate damage will be automatically declined.
Year 8 or 9 Insurance Claim
If you wish to make an insurance claim for a stolen or damaged iPad and you are in Year 8 or 9 please download a claim form, fill in and send to the academy along with your iPad. Forms can also be obtained from reception.
Year 10 or Year 11 Insurance Claim
The three year policy has now expired and these iPads are no longer insured for accidental damage or theft.

Students rights and responsibilities
At Accrington Academy, all students are valued as individuals within a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment. We believe that every individual is important and has a right to:
A supportive learning environment which is safe, secure and stimulating and in which all people are valued as individuals and where the environment and personal possessions are treated with respect
An outstanding educational provision that is appropriate to the individual’s needs
Learning activities and opportunities, at a personalised level, that match and provide challenges, encouraging students to achieve and make progress
Opportunities to develop confidence as a learner, in order to develop well informed attitudes and opinions.
Together with these rights, we must all share in a responsibility to:
Treat others as we would wish to be treated, with good manners and respect
Work hard to achieve our personal potential
Act in a manner that does not prevent others from learning
Express opinions in a manner which is socially acceptable, does not offend others and acknowledges that those of differing opinions can live in harmony with each other.
