Laptops for Learners
We’re raising £5,000 to provide laptops for Archers who need one, please can you help?
Can you imagine how hard it is to try and do a Maths test, write an English essay or explore a History source without access to a computer? For some of our students, keeping up with schoolwork in lockdown is almost impossible. Without easy access to a computer, there’s a big risk they’ll fall behind, especially as most of them won’t be back with us before September.
We’re doing what we can; we’re printing out resources, and have given out 10 school laptops to students who were struggling without one – but we want to do more. We’ve identified the next 20 students whose learning could be most transformed by a basic laptop, and are allocating £1,400 from school funds to put towards the cost. And we’re asking our community to help us raise the remaining £5,000 we need by the end of this half term.
This crisis has shown that amazing things can happen when people pull together to support those in need, something I know our community is brilliant at doing. Please do what you can to help our students who are most at risk of falling behind.
