MY PROJECT (& NEW Stretch TARGET!)

Introduce your school

All Saints’ is a thriving community situated in Lewisham and in close proximity to London. Our families lie at the heart of our school community, representing the vibrant and diverse mix of cultures who live here. Our school offers specialist provision to pupils with hearing impairments including a Communication Support Worker.

What do you want?

We would like to buy 6x laptops and 6x headphones.

Who is this for?

This is for a club we wish to run for our children and their families to learn British Sign Language and world languages to increase children's culture capital, knowledge and understanding of the world in which they live. In turn we believe this would raise their self confidence and emotional well being.

Why do you want it?

We view our school community as a family which works in harmonious partnerships to provide new and exciting opportunities for our children to become active learners. This initiative is one that will benefit our children and their families to learn new skills, especially in modern foreign languages, and become more sensitive in relation to difference in disability.

Update: Stretch target

Thank you for your extraordinary generosity! We are amazed and touched by your support. Your pledges will help make so much difference to our students' learning.

We are setting an ambitious new funding target of £3,144 to enable us to buy 15 laptops.

This will allow us to purchase a class set of laptops to replace an existing set which are showing their age. Our network team will then redeploy our current machines elsewhere in the school where they are most needed, ensuring that there are no gaps in provision in our classrooms, library and IT suites.

Thank you once again for your generous support. Please continue to support and share this campaign wherever you can!
