they are £5 from play, go and get one!!!
i paid for my own.... you earn more,
if the school supplied the staff with their own it would cost a lot .... go, run, play.com, do it nowww

I have had staff demand a larger HDD in their laptop as they've filled it up with personal pictures/music/video.

Surely school should supply them if they are needed for the job?

Not really needed for their job though - this is the reason they're given laptops!

Your office keys are needed for your job, but if you left them in a pub you wouldn't expect the school to roll over and replace them just like that...

The way I see it is, if they need them then that is what their departmental budget is for.

Did you keeps a back up of any of the data on the network? No? Oh, dear - now you know why school policy is NOT to use pen drives for data storage.

Hopefully within the next 2 years i hope to do away with USB pendrives and the like as they will be able to get their desktop from home, in doing so it will also eradicate the need for the laptops which they feel are a part of the job description (no! No! NO! laptop scheme for teachers ended 4 years ago now BUY YOUR OWN!!!).
I could ask for all kinds of equipment to fulfil my role but it is not necessary for me to have it.
What a job where all you have to do is ask and when you get refused stamp your feet and scweem and scweem and make yourself sick hehe!! I can you know
Enjoy your 6 weeks holiday and keep out of my way for the duration of that time and whatever you do................................................ ......DON'T WISH ME HAPPY HOLIDAYS unless you already know that I don't get them and your taking the p**s!!!

I know of at least one member of staff (now "moved up" in the LEA) who would see that as a reason for the school to provide both a home computer and network connection (and probably a printer too).

Err have you got a PSU for my school laptop, its broken. Can you get one yesterday? Err who earns more than me, who has broken it, err you have.
I have a similar (hint) model to your laptop, mine works fine, not broken, mangled bent, etc and it works fine.
As for USB, err what is the storage area on your computer for then? Use the VLE, its much safer for crist sake.

part of my jd is to keep a breast of current news and dev, so i build a new computer costing over 1k, i didnt ask for that back, i would have been told to f-off.

It would be entirely up to the individual but as the use of USB storage devices would be banned in the school by the SLT as it creates the easy transfer of data off the network.
So if they don't want to use the VDI solution from home then they will have to do all their work at school hehe!! Sorted!
With the advent of the VDI solution we can sort so that data cannot be taken off the network without permission and an audit trail setup for those that have permission.
All part of the "Safeguarding Model" which the school wishes to enforce rigidly.

I have a policy regarding iTunes:

USB sticks are a right pain. If people aren't losing them, they're sticking them in the wrong sockets, bringing the wrong one, breaking them, storing work only on one of them, having them full of viruses etc... There's no need for them, we provide a sharepoint system, we provide email, we provide a VLE, we provide laptops, we provide centralised, backed up storage.
Why should we have to fund dozens of mini-disasters in the making?
