Devices to support remote learning

Dear Parents

Understandably, we have had a lot of enquiries from parents about laptops and devices from the Department for Education (DfE) for families who need them. We are doing everything we can to support families who need a device or need to be connected to the internet.  At this moment in time, we have been allocated just over 80 devices across our 5 schools (which currently serve just over 3000 pupils).
