Over the past two years teachers and support staff at Brynteg School have worked incredibly hard to design an exciting, engaging and inclusive curriculum, providing pupils with opportunities which inspire and enthuse them to become lifelong learners. Key to the success of this curriculum model has been the development of our iPad programme, whereby all pupils have been provided with their own personal iPad upon entry to Brynteg School, allowing them to be able to capture their learning in the moment, carry out digital tasks both at school and at home, showcase their learning journey through their e-portfolios, hold discussions about their learning with their teachers, parents and carers, and reflect on their learning. 

The introduction of our iPad programme has ensured that all of our pupils have access to digital technology and digital opportunities, regardless of their economic situation at home. Unfortunately, due to budgetary constraints in common with all schools, the future of our iPad programme is in serious doubt and we need your help to ensure that our new cohort of pupils are able to access the same opportunities as our current Year 7 and 8 pupils working within the new Curriculum for Wales. 

Here’s what our pupils think …

“Through my iPad I have learned so many new digital skills and I am able to access my work at any time whilst in school and at home.”

“This is the first iPad I’ve ever had and I love it! I can share my learning with my Mum when I go home and she is then proud of me!”

“I love being able to upload all of my work onto my e-portfolio as then I can easily reflect on my work and plan next steps to improve.”

“My ipad is so important to me as it means that now I am no different to my friends and I am able to complete all of my homework more easily.”

“My iPad helps me to be more of an independent learner as I'm able to access resources and complete independent research both in and outside the classroom.”

If you are in a position to support us to continue this inclusive opportunity for all of our pupils and would like to donate towards our iPad programme, we would be incredibly grateful for your support, however small. 

Thank you.
