    I don't think it will be a problem here. Staff/Pupils will be able to bring their own devices in. The LEA have set up a third domain which the laptops will connect to. Users will then be directed to a website portal where they will log in. They will then have access to the web through the LEA filtering system and access to their work and files through the Sharepoint Learning Gateway we have.

    Their laptops will not touch our curriculum network at all.

    It will work (I believe) like Caravan Club/coffee shop websites where you are directed to a web portal before being given the open access. The 'Guest' network will be subject to the same port filtering and website filtering as everyone else in the LEA broadband network.

    This is the clincher for me. Anytime Learning is important. As a secondary school we have to compete with the six form colleges in our area. They provide wireless to their students. We don't want to lose sixth formers so want to make our sixth form as attractive as possible. They will be able to access anywhere.
