Help with accessing online learning/devices, etc.
Access to Technology
We have been working to ensure that identified families and students have access to appropriate technology for remote learning. We have made extensive use of the national Government and Local Authority schemes as well as sourcing many of our own devices to help families who may have multiple children at home.
Our priority has been to allocate devices to the disadvantaged students in Years 11, 12 and 13. We have a list of families who are waiting for devices.
We have ordered more laptops and as soon as we receive them, we will set up these devices to be issued to families.
Other internet enabled devices can also be used:
We are also aware that games consoles Xbox and PlayStation can be used to access some elements of remote learning and there is an article from the Times Education Supplement on this subject here: https://www.tes.com/news/how-use-xbox-or-playstation-online-learning.
