Your child can install Office as many times as they want but they are limited on how many devices they are signed in on.
Office and all of it’s apps will only work with an active Office 365 subscribed account. Your child’s school e-mail account is a Office 365 account which allows Office to be registered on 5 devices at any one time. These devices can include both computers and mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) but cannot exceed the maximum number of registrations.
For example, your child might have a tablet and a computer with Office activated on both. Office installed and child’s Office 365 account signed in on computer + apps installed and Office 365 account signed in on tablet = 2 activations. In this scenario your child will be able to install and activate Office on a further 3 devices before they have reached their maximum number of 5 devices that they have activated Office on using their free allocation.
If your child has used up all of their five activations when they attempt to register Office or any apps on another device using their school e-mail account you will by told that they cannot sign in with their school e-mail account to activate. Your child will need to sign out of Office and all of its apps on a device they have previously signed in on before they can continue to use Office on another device.
