Moving with the times! ICT upgrade & overhaul
We did it
On 19th April 2018 we successfully raised £925 with 13 supporters in 56 days

We would like to upgrade our ICT suite with child and teacher friendly equipment and resources with a fast and reliable internet service.

We are very lucky to have a separate ICT suite but unfortunately the equipment no longer works to the standard specification required for staff and pupils to use and access easily on a daily basis.  There are many occasions when several computers won't even turn on ! This is very frustrating and a complete waste of our teacher's and pupil's time. By investing a large amount of money and giving the infrastructure and suite a complete overhaul then staff and pupils will be far more encouraged to use the facility. A couple of I-Pads have been introduced in our Reception class but we feel it is also very important that children get to use a keyboard and learn how to type. Any donation how ever small would be greatly appreciated so we can move our school forward with the times. Our last ICT refurbishment project was back in 2002/3 and funded by the government. Luckily our PTA and Governors are in the position to put approximately £10k towards this project, however the overall cost is going to be over £30k if we do it properly! We already have a company working with us and are hoping the works  will start in April. Unfortunately schools do not have the funding in their budgets any longer to enable them to complete such projects. Thank you for your support.
