25.9.20 - Digital Devices Survey

Dear Parents/Carers,

Digital Devices

Access to laptops has presented problems for many families throughout the pandemic. 

For us to understand the availability and access of devices for students at The Howard School, I would appreciate if parents/carers can complete a short survey by clicking here to assist us with our future planning. 

The Howard Trust are exploring implementing a 1:1 device programme within all academies, including The Howard School. This would allow parents/carers to purchase a device for students and pay for it over 30 months, typically at a cost of £12.00 per month.  Arrangements will be put in place for families who are in receipt of free school meals to access a device.  A question has been included within the survey to gauge interest from parents/carers in this scheme.   

There is also a question about critical workers and young caregivers. To check your status in relation to this Government guidance on critical workers can be accessed here.   

I want to ensure that, in the event of a local/national lockdown, each child’s education can continue via technology.

Kind regards

Ms C Reid
Executive Headteacher
