Setting up your iPad

Creating an Apple ID

Children under 13 can’t create an Apple ID on their own. However, as a parent or legal guardian, the family organiser can provide verified parental consent for a child to have their own Apple ID, then create it on the child’s behalf.

Apps

The following are a range of core apps that are used across a variety of lessons – you must make sure that you have all of these downloaded on your iPad!

Free

Paid

All paid apps will be provided by the school free of charge – the app store will show these as free.

Mail

To add your school e-mail to the Mail app, follow these steps:

(ZuluDesk users will already have this account pre-configured on their iPad.)

  1. Add an Exchange account
  2. When prompted, enter your school e-mail address and school password. Your e-mail address will be the same as your username with @bournside.gloucs.sch.uk appended – E.g. if your username is jacksmith, your e-mail will be jacksmith@bournside.gloucs.sch.uk
  3. Tap Continue. The app will then verify your email settings and add the mail account to the app.

If you are asked to provide further information such as the server address and username, please use these details:

Server address: outlook.office365.com
Username: Your e-mail address (e.g. jacksmith@bournside.gloucs.sch.uk)

You can leave the rest blank.

School systems

Foldr

You can use Foldr to access your school files from any place, any time. When setting up Foldr on your iPad, it will ask you for a server address which is: foldr.bournside.gloucs.sch.uk. You can then login using your school credentials (the same you use for the computers and Frog.)
