We would like to enable Touch ID for pupils, to make it easier for them to unlock their Empowered Learning iPads. In order to do this, we have been asked to make parents & carers aware that this option is going to be made available to pupils. As a result, the Home School Agreement has been updated to state this.
The use of Touch ID is optional for each user, but you may want to look at the attached information (https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204587), which provides reassurance that, if Touch ID is enabled, the fingerprint data is encrypted and stored mathematically on the device in such a way that it is impossible for anyone to access it.
The updated Home School Agreement and Responsible User Agreement are available here: https://digitaleducationteam.com/empowered-learning-downloads/
