Loan of Devices (Laptops) to Support Remote Learning
As you may be aware the government has a scheme to provide laptops to children who do not have devices/internet access at home.
At the time of writing, Government guidance states that children who are eligible for this are those in Years 3-6 where any of the following are applicable:
- There are no digital devices in your household
- The only available device is a smartphone
- There is only one device in your household which is being shared with more than one other family member
- Your child is clinically extremely vulnerable and having to shield
If your child falls into any of the above categories, the school has been allocated a limited number of devices to loan to children in order for them to continue with their learning remotely from home. These should be available shortly.
The scheme is a loan system. A laptop would be loaned to any eligible pupil for the duration of school closure. There will be a loan agreement to be signed and the laptop will have to be returned once school is re-opened.
If you believe that your child is eligible for a home device, please contact school office on 01913710444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
