Whilst we are called Meir Heath Academy, we call ourselves The Meir Heath Family. We are a two-form entry Primary Academy who strive for excitement and enjoyment in education as well as the highest academic standards. Our children are successful because they are happy and valued. Our school values are Happy, Hardworking and Caring.
What do we want
We want some electronic tablets, to use across the curriculum.
Who is this for?
The tablets are for the children to use, individually, in small groups or as a class, under the guidance of their class teacher.
Why do we want it?
We would love our children to learn how to use social media safely from a young age. Currently, the class teachers don't have access to a tablet, nor do they have staff laptops. We would like each class to house a tablet so that the children, under the guidance of the staff, can tweet about their exciting lessons. They will be able to capture their fun moments in school and share this with the rest of the Meir Heath Family aka parents, grandparents, Aunties, Uncles and family friends. This way, they too can share their proud moments no matter where they are, be it work or even on the other side of the world, and our school community will become even more connected.
WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES
We are hoping to purchase:
8X Linx 10.1" 32GB WiFi Tablet @ £179.99 each = £1443.87
Credit card fees @ 2%: £28.88
If we are able to raise more, we would love to buy 12 tablets, costing £2207.11 in total
HELP US REACH OUR TARGET!
As a Staffordshire school with a low percentage of students on Pupil Premium, our budget is really poor. Due to funding, the lack of IT equipment limits what we can do, even though our classrooms buzz with excitement.
