The management platforms provided by the DfE for equipment provided last year will be withdrawn on the following dates:
iPads – 08 July 2021
Routers – 16 July 2021 (data ends 31 July 2021)
Laptops/Tablets – 30 September 2021
Withdrawal of the management platforms means that the antivirus and filtering software on the devices will no longer be updated; therefore you should now make arrangements to reconfigure this equipment in order to be able to continue to use it safely.
Please note that equipment allocated to Looked After Children remains the property of the Local Authority’s Virtual School and should not be reformatted nor removed from the child it was initially allocated to; the local authority will make alternative arrangements for this equipment via the relevant case worker.
