Riversides School is a small city-based school for pupils with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties.

What we want

We want to buy a set of iPads for the pupils to use in class.

Who is this for?

This is for all of the pupils in our school.

Why we want it

The iPads will allow our pupils to visualise their lessons more clearly and allow them to interact with subject matter in a totally new way. It will enable them to access resources which will make the subjects they are studying much more exciting and interactive. Technology is very much a part of the modern world and our pupils need to be fully au fait with modern technology.
