Norbury Manor Primary School

NMP Pupil Loan Device for Working at Home

The Department of Education (DfE)  has provided schools with devices to help children and families access remote education during coronavirus (COVID-19).  

The DfE has outlined the following criteria when allocating devices to families:

  • Disadvantaged children in years 3 to 6 who do not have access to a device and whose face-to-face education is disrupted.
  • Disadvantaged children in any year group who have been advised to shield because they (or someone they live with) are clinically extremely vulnerable.
  • Disadvantaged children in any year group attending a hospital school
  • Disadvantaged children with special educational needs and disabilities?

The Department for Education identifies disadvantaged pupils as:

  • Eligible for Free School Meals or have been in the last six years
  • Looked After Children (LAC), or those who have previously looked after by the state, but are now adopted or are subject to a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order
  • Children with parents in the armed forces.

The DfE criteria will be used when allocating devices to families.   There are currently 40+ devices, but I have requested additional devices from other sources and hope to gather information from you that I can use to request more devices from the DfE. 

Please remember that the tablets are on loan and must be returned when the school request them.  Please read the ‘Norbury Manor Primary School Remote Learning Device- Acceptable Use Agreement’ document before completing the device request form.  You may also like to read the Online Safety Policy.
