Question

I am looking to find out what the council's current policy on allowing High School Pupils to access WiFi in school/in class is? As well as if, they have recently and/or plan on, changing it in the next 12 months.

Answer

Pupils do not have access to WiFi in class as we do not have the broadband wireless capacity for them to access wifi. We are looking at making more bandwidth available and at pupils bringing their own devices to school. There would be restrictions in place in line with all computers in our schools.  There are currently no plans on changing in the next 12 months.
