The UK government developed a scheme to enable disadvantaged students to get access to their educational content while staying safe at home. Free laptops and 4G routers are to be given to students to allow them access to their online lessons.
This scheme is available for:
-Children who receive support from a social worker
-Disadvantaged children in year 10 due to sit their GCSEs next year
How to get these devices?
The students do not need to apply for it. The school will identify and contact the students eligible to receive this help directly. The devices will be dispatched to the school and sent to the student home or to be collected at the school by the students or his family.
The students can contact the school to ask if he is eligible or not.
