The Government have produced some information that may be useful to some families. Please read the information contained in the link below.
This scheme is open to children and young people who:
- don’t have access to a fixed broadband connection
- cannot afford the additional data needed to access educational resources or social care services
- have access to a mobile device that uses a participating network
- are facing disruption to their face-to-face education, or have been advised not to attend school
A ParentMail form will be sent out for you to provide more information. A response is needed by 1.00pm on Monday 11 January.
ADDITIONAL DATA IS NOT GUARANTEED AS THIS IS A PILOT RUN BY THE GOVERNMENT, NOT SCHOOL.
Please consider very carefully if it is really needed or not.
