If you daughter changes school the laptop should bee returned.

If the insurance has been paid annually, pupils will be allowed to keep the laptop for personal use.

I’m worried about crime – what if its lost or stolen?

Research suggests this is very unlikely.

We would ask you not to do this with out first checking with the school.
