The Aldgate School is the only State primary school in the City of London and its pupils have an urgent need of laptops and tablets on which to access the school’s online learning programme.
Lizzie Webb, the school’s business manager has asked me to pass on this message to you:
Covid-19 has affected our children in many ways. In particular it has highlighted the lack of access to technology for some of our families. Class bubbles are having to close and move to remote learning. As a school we have been steadily integrating technology with learning. Providing access to technology not only allows for the children to learn remotely but also to communicate with their peers during periods of isolation. This supports both their wellbeing and reduces the feeling of isolation for some of the children; many of whom live in overcrowded conditions and have no access to technology at home.
If you have a tablet or laptop which you would be willing to donate to the school please do contact us.
