About us

We are a one form entry school on the outskirts of Barnsley. Our children love to learn but we have very limited technology due to the financial restraints of the school.

What do we want?

We currently have 2 iPads in school and would like to double this to 4 so that children right across school can use them to enhance and develop their learning.

Who is this for?

This is for all our children to benefit from.

Why do we want it?

We would really like iPads for our children to enhance their learning experiences. We would like to ensure that our children can become digitally literate and have access to technology that other children have.  We know that if we had some iPads for the children to access in all areas of their learning this would be able to support and extend their knowledge further. There are many educational apps for children to access which cover all areas of learning, including phonics, literacy, maths, programming, digital art and especially internet safety. These are all key aspects of the children's education and having iPads would really help our children.
