    Hello Revajr,


    Thank you for using Apple Support Communities!

    First I would go to and log in. Check the Pages section there to make sure your documents are indeed in iCloud.

    When that is verified, next you need to turn off the iCloud function of pages in Settings:


    1. Scroll down to Apps on the left side of the Settings window, and tap Pages.
    2. Slide “Use iCloud” to ON.

    When iCloud is turned off in Pages on this device, edits you make or new documents that you create aren’t saved to iCloud, and new or changed documents from other devices or from your computer aren’t available in Pages on this device.

    From: Pages for iOS (iPad): Keep documents up to date across your devices using iCloud



    Once that is off, you can edit, or delete the documents on the iPad without the changes syncing to iCloud.

    Take care,
