Laptops and wi-fi scheme – support needed

The Power to Connect Tech4Good award winning campaign helps local families access schoolwork from home with refurbished computers or broadband vouchers. Since launch, hundreds of emergency phone data top-up vouchers and wi-fi dongles, funded by a £10,000 donation from the Battersea Power Station Foundation, have been distributed to families in the borough.

Nearly 400 donated laptops, tablets and desktop computers have been refurbished into Google Chromebooks, by IT volunteers and distributed to 46 Wandsworth schools and 6 Community Organisations. With many students across the borough self-isolating due to Covid-19, Power to Connect is still in need of devices to reach demand.

We are asking for your help in promoting this scheme with the parents of your pupils – they may have older equipment that is no longer being used, or perhaps being replaced with new devices at Christmas.

If any families who are upgrading laptops at Christmas or have any older unwanted laptop or tablet and would like to donate theirs to a family more in need computer or tablet, they can find all the information at www.powertoconnect.co.uk

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
