Thanks to the people who suggested this.  I now have two programmed up to run in OATH mode.  I'd already written the code to handle softtokens on my iPhone, and the Yubicos dropped straight in and worked first time.   Reassuringly, you provide your own key material, rather than as with other products messing about making sure you have the right physical token configured with the right pre-programmed key.

They also have two profiles, so you can configure them for two purposes.

My kids will try them at school tomorrow.
