General Points to Note:

  • The Device is not compulsory. It is merely a recommendation for those who need/wish to purchase or update their home device. Students will not be at a disadvantage if they do not purchase the device.
  • If you have a device at present, there is no requirement to purchase an additional device. All students of St. Brendan’s Community School have a school email address which allows for 5 downloadable copies of Office 365 for FREE which can be downloaded to your home device/s.
  • We will still be using our schoolbooks as normal in the next academic year. The device will not be required in school, rather for home use. School books will not be loaded on the device. The publisher apps will be available on the devices. From here students can simply open the publisher app, enter in the eBook code that is available on the inside of their physical bookand download the eBook version
  • If you are a family with more than one child, you can obtain a shared family device. You must link in with Wriggle to inform them of your requirement for a shared family device. If you purchase one device, please quote your order number and the child’s name that you purchased the device for when requesting a shared device. You will then need to give the additional sibling names to Wriggle for the completion of this setup process.
  • The device will be setup with our school’s policy on Apps and websites. If you require other Apps to be loaded to the device, you must inform Wriggle. The device will be under our school’s Wi Fi restrictions if/when in school, when at home, it falls under your Internet setup and restrictions therein.
  • There is no grant available towards the cost of the device.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

With a view to returning to school for our next academic year, we have had several requests for recommendations in terms of purchasing a device for students' home use.

As a dedicated Microsoft school, we recommend the Surface bundle deals offered by Wriggle. Students of St. Brendan’s Community School are eligible for Office 365 Education for FREE,including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and now Microsoft Teams, plus additional classroom tools using their valid school email address.

We have organised the setup of our Bespoke Online Wriggle Store if you are interested in purchasing a device for your son/daughter. Please note this is not a compulsory requirement for students, but it is advisable that all students have access to a device for our next academic year, in conjunction with our remote teaching, learning and assessment (TLA) and blended learning.

This store has been built for students in St. Brendan’s Community School, and specifically for each year group which includes the device (Surface Go 2), case, pen and service and support therein.
