Getting help with Technology
DfE is increasing the help available through its get help with technology programme.
providing hundreds of thousands more laptops and tablets – reaching a total of more than 1 million
supporting disadvantaged 16 to 19 year olds in further education
DfE will contact schools, colleges, trusts and local authorities when they’re able to order these devices during the spring term 2021.
Schools will be able to order an allocation of devices for:
disadvantaged children in years 3 to 11 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
This offer applies to maintained schools, pupil referral units, academy trusts and hospital schools, as well as sixth-form colleges who have enrolled 14 to 16 year olds.
Disadvantaged children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are included within this offer. However, if specialist support and equipment is required help may be available through the Family Fund.
