We are aware that there are a number of students in Year 9 and Year 10 who missed the initial opportunity to join the academy device provision programme and who have requested that this portal be opened once again. All devices come with insurance and warranty, and by using The Leigh’s buying power and dealing with the IT provider directly, we have achieved significant savings against standard retail pricing.
Currently, all students who are without their own device in Year 9 and 10, borrow an academy Chromebook from their year group lap safe each morning and have to return this at the end of each school day. By purchasing a new device through the programme, your child will be able to bring their own device into school each day and continue their online learning at home. This is something that we are aware is becoming increasingly important as our students approach their GCSE examinations year.
The Leigh Academy is committed to developing 21st Century Learners: confident, collaborative, independent and digitally literate young people who are equipped for future study and work in the modern world. The Student 1:1 program is designed to give our students access to the learning tools and online resources that can help develop their potential.
What we are asking from parents of Year 9 and Year 10 is to consider if you would like to buy a Chromebook for your child. If so, you would need to commit to a fixed, monthly payment that not only provides your child with a personal device that can be used at home or school, but also includes all necessary insurance and warranty costs.
