We spoke with Ross Weeks who, as Hove Park School’s IT support manager, is responsible for implementing solutions to support teaching and learning for their 1,600 students and 200 staff.
"When we first rolled out an iPad per student 3 years ago, it quickly became evident we needed to provide our users with a safe and secure storage location that was manageable by our IT Support team, rather than letting our 11-16 year olds loose on 3rd party cloud storage"
"Since we deployed Foldr 2 years ago, it’s become part of school policy to save work created on iPads to the network via Foldr. In the event of needing to replace a device, having easy access to students' and staff’s work is essential. Foldr has come to the rescue on more than one occasion."
"Foldr helps us cross and dot the T’s and I’s with many data protection laws, this was really important to us." So once Hove Park School had chosen Foldr, what was the reception like? Ross explains that things got off to a great start: "When we unveiled Foldr last September, we had a round of applause from everyone at the staff meeting!"
