Getting Help with Technology and Data

Do you need increased Mobile Data?

  • Extra Mobile Data Request
    The Government have announced that they are working in partnership with some mobile network providers to provide free mobile data increases to families who do not have broadband at home, or cannot afford extra data. It is not yet fully clear, but if you have an unstable, intermittent or unreliable broadband connection, I would also urge you to apply for this (I cannot guarantee that you would be successful, but it is worth trying!). In order to apply for this we need to submit your request to the Department For Education, please complete the survey below to allow us to make your ‘Extra Mobile Data Request'. You do need to have read the privacy statement, here: Please note that you are applying for extra mobile data for the single device that your child uses – so if you have more than one child, you will need to apply for each of their individual devices. Please contact the school office to let us know you have completed this survey and we can process your request.

Getting help with Technology

DfE is increasing the help available through its get help with technology programme.

This includes:

  • 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.

Who can get Laptops and Tablets from the DfE

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 enroled 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.
