OUR PROJECT

About us

We are St. Winefride's Catholic Primary School. We are based in the town of Holywell, which is located in Flintshire, North Wales. We are a primary setting with approximately 170 children ranging from ages 3-11.

What do we want?

New laptops and computers to update our ICT equipment.

Who is this for?

This is a whole school project, therefore we are aiming to ensure that we have class computers and a specific ICT area in both the Foundation Phase and in Key Stage 2.

Why do we want it?

Currently, we are delivering the basic requirements of the 2008 National Curriculum (ICT- Wales) and the new Digital Competence Framework (DCF-2016).  This is because our ICT equipment has become so outdated. Our computers and laptops are too old and will no longer work on the local authorities systems from September 2018. Therefore, we need an overhaul of laptops and computers and newer versions that are operational on a minimum of Windows 7. Therefore, we are kindly asking for your support to ensure that this generation of our learners are receiving access to the latest technology and providing them with essential computers skills that they will require in later life.

STRETCH TARGET

If we're fortunate enough to raise more than our target, then we would also like to buy 10 x iPads and 10 chromebooks. This will enable us not only to have designated areas of ICT across our school but allow us to create ICT on the move, where iPads and Chromebooks can be used in the classroom, in provision areas and outdoors.
