Whilst we are called Park Hall Academy, we call ourselves Park Hall Family. We are a 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.
What do you want?
We want some iPads and laptops to use across the curriculum.
Who is this for?
The iPads and laptops are for the children to use, individually, in small groups or as a class, under guidance of their class teacher.
Why do you want it?
We would love our children to learn how to use social media safely from a young age and to leave the school with PC knowledge.
Our aim is to have a tablet and laptop in each class so that children, under the guidance of 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 Park Hall 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
1 x iPad 9.7” Wifi 32GB @ £301.80 each = £307.80 (inc £6.00 delivery)
2 x Dell Vostro 15 3000 Series i5 @ £524.55 each = £1,049.10
Credit card fees (2%): £27.14
Total = £1,384.04
If we are fortunate to raise more, we would like to buy a total of 2 iPads and 3 laptops, giving a total of £2,226.92.
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.
