In More Detail

The service is provided by NYES Digital and takes advantage of the NYCC Corporate Contract underpinned by Virgin Media – in partnership with the EE network. So everywhere the EE network covers you’ll be able to get a signal. But if you’re not sure then provide NYES Digital with a postcode and we’ll will test the coverage for you.

You’ll only ever need to deal with the one provider – NYES Digital – with all support through the NYES Digital Help Desk – 01609 536086, nyes.digital@northyorks.gov.uk 

Our contracts run for 24 months with a fixed monthly charge for the entire duration of the contract – so you will know exactly what you are paying – no costly surprises.

Easy billing – monthly charges for all handsets and additional international calls are accumulated into one annual bill and billed through Oracle.

If your phone is lost or stolen NYES Digital can stop calls and centrally deactivate the phone preventing access to any stored information.

If you want to upgrade handsets or your handset goes missing the contract is still active so all you need to do is purchase a replacement handset and NYES Digital can link it to your existing contract.

Smartphone Benefits

Need to keep in touch? – access your email and calendar through Office 365 

Your handset will support MIS apps which allow access on the go – depending on your MIS supplier there may be a charge for the mobile app 

Your phone can act as a tether to the internet for your laptop or tablet so you can access your files even when out of the office – useful for outdoor lessons, field trips etc

Worried about connection to the Internet? – we can add your phone to your Smoothwall account – so you will get the same internet filtering and monitoring protection as in school

GDPR and Mobile Phones

Advice is not to store any data on the phone and just use it to connect to and app which should be GDPR compliant.

NYES Digital will only install apps that are GDPR compliant and can lock the phone so data can only be saved within these GDPR compliant apps.

You can be confident in knowing that any pupil data will be secure and governed by the app and NYCC data protection policies minimising GDPR infringements.

As an extra layer of protection phones can be encrypted although there is a cost for set up.
