Please contact the school if you have a suitable laptop or tablet which you would be able to donate, or have links to any local business we could contact. A number of our pupils do not have access to any technical device to support their remote learning and are relying on printed paper packs of work from the school. Any donations would make a real difference to individual children and families.
