Laptops for Disadvantaged & Vulnerable Children
Following on from the government announcement on Sunday regarding laptops, we have been provided with the following information:
Digital devices for disadvantaged and vulnerable children
Local authorities, trusts and other relevant organisations overseeing schools will be given guidance on how to place online orders for devices for eligible pupils. Schools, parents and pupils will not be able to order the devices themselves.
Digital devices for care leavers and children with social workers will be given to local authorities who will manage distribution to children and young people. Schools may be asked to help manage distribution where appropriate.
We will update you as soon as we receive any further information.
