OUR PROJECT

About us

We are a small village primary school in the Tendring area. We are outward looking and strive to give our children as many different opportunities as possible. 

What do we want?

We would like 5 laptops. 

Who is this for?

Everyone! The laptops will be used by all children to develop their computing skills, including coding, as well as enhancing other areas of the curriculum. 

Why do we want it?

We would love to provide an enriched computing curriculum for all of our children at Tendring Primary school.  

Unfortunately, our current crop of laptops is not up for the challenge of delivering this curriculum and we do not have the funding available to change this. We have nine laptops that just about work at the moment but many have broken screens, missing buttons and are very slow.  

The computing curriculum requires children to be able to participate successfully in tasks around computer science and computer programming, which is extremely difficult with the current situation of our laptops.  

Volunteers run the school's extremely popular and oversubscribed Code Club. It would be fantastic to expand and open it up to more children. 

WHERE YOUR MONEY GOES

5 x Acer Extensa laptops @ £400 each  

Total = £2,000 

STRETCH TARGET

If we're fortunate enough to raise more than our target, then we would also like to buy additional laptops.
