    Purchase iOS apps - Cross curricular

    Our iOS devices are expanding at a pace now. We are trying to decide on a way forward when it comes to buying apps. We use the VPP to purchase them which is no problem, it is more the policy of who pays for what.

    Does anyone just buy in bulk for the entire fleet of devices so that all have the apps and all are the same?

    We currently have Science, Maths and Humanities using the devices, each requiring different apps to meet their requirements.

    It is the cross curricular apps such as Numbers, Pages etc which are causing contention as the argument is they should be paid out of a central "apps" budget

    Just wondered how other school were going about it?

    We have gone for the IT budget to start off as it was identified in a FIP, we don't share our iPads across departments though, DT have 15, they also have 15 copies of Keynote so it works nicely

    Any new apps would certainly be going out of their departmental budgets, £104 for 15 copies of Keynote is a joke imo
