We recognise that not all students have the means to easily access online learning due to economic circumstances and competing for hardware with parents working from home. The recent Government initiative to provide IT hardware to families who are struggling financially unfortunately will not provide us with enough to furnish each family who we know would value some support. Accordingly, we are asking if there are any families who could donate old iPads, Chromebooks or laptops they no longer require. The devices you donate will be provided to families with children within our school community, so that they are able to access our best resources and get immediate support and feedback from our teachers. We are specifically asking for: âiPad 3s or higher âChromebooks âLaptops capable of running Windows 7 or higher. It is important that any donated devices are cleaned/disinfected, using ethyl or isopropyl alcohol on a soft cloth (follow manufacturers’ recommendations). They need to be in full working order, with working leads and power adapters for laptops and Chromebook (not essential for iPads), and completely reset. We are able to remove existing user accounts and
check devices over. Owners will need to supply the password to an administrator account if they are Windows laptops.

Thank you in advance if you are able to support this initiative.
