As we have all moved to remote learning, the need for the right technology has become critical. Unfortunately, there are still many children at Vaughan who have no or only limited access to a computer and WiFi at home and are not able to take part in the online learning they deserve.
Our school has been lending pupils computers, appealing for additional support from businesses, as well as distributing the 29 computers bought by the Government for selected year groups. However, none of this has been anywhere near enough to end the inequality of access to online learning within our school community.
We think this is unacceptable. Our ambition is that no pupil should be without the equipment (computer and Wi-Fi connection) they need to access learning online. This remains really important even as we start to look forward to the return to school.
Any donation big or small is hugely appreciated and will help us create a fairer school.
