BPET schools receive 160 ‘Mail Force computers for kids’

What a fabulous return to in-school learning on 8th March 2021, as all eight schools in the Trust received a delivery of 20 laptops from the Daily Mail ‘Mail Force’ campaign providing computers for schools to give to pupils in need of a laptop. That’s 160 devices across the group.

Here is a quick montage of our grateful staff and pupils:

We would like to thank every individual, every business who made a donation to the fund raising campaign as these laptops will really help our pupils most in need with future home-work or 1-2-1 learning in school under the guidance of our fabulous Learning Support and Teaching Assistants.

It also means some devices “loaned” from school resources during lockdown can be returned to school for on-going use, with such families gaining the Mail Force device permanently!

The eight BPET schools are:

Braywick Court School (Bray, Maidenhead), Deer Park School (Richmond upon Thames), Evendons Primary (Wokingham), Halley House School (Hackney), Kilburn Grange School (Brent), Rutherford House School (Balham), Watling Park School (Barnet) and Whitehall Park School (Islington).

Mail Force is a Charity: So far* they have raised £1,473,952.80 to provide much needed school equipment and resources for pupils across the UK learning from home.
