Share your experiences of school laptop provision during the pandemic

Posted on Jan 14, 2021

According to Ofcom, about 9% of children in the UK – between 1.1 million and 1.8 million – do not have access to a laptop, desktop or tablet at home. More than 880,000 of them live in a household with only a mobile internet connection.

The government is providing more thanone million laptops and tablets to those without adequate provision and says that those who require more should contact the Department for Education.

We would like to hear from teachers, parents and students about their experiences around laptop provision for school students who are remote learning because of the national lockdown. How is it going so far? Do you have any concerns?
