Students need to be prepared for an increasingly digital world. Research has confirmed that appropriate home access to technology has a positive impact on a child’s educational achievements; it often motivates them to do school work by providing other interesting and engaging ways to learn. Research and other types of learning that do not require handwritten pieces are often better presented so their self-esteem grows and they can explore subjects that interest them in their own time.
Lenovo 100e Chromebook (2nd Gen)
We have selected the Lenovo 100e Chromebook 2nd Gen which is best suited to enhance the learning experience of our students at Burscough Priory Academy. This Chromebook is specifically designed for student use with a rugged outer casing. Each Chromebook is also supplied with a guaranteed repair service giving complete peace of mind.
How much is the scheme and what are the payment plans?
We have three different plans:
If you choose to purchase outright then the payment is taken immediately from your chosen account. If you choose any of the monthly payment options, there is no initial payment to be made. The first monthly payment will be taken on 25th July. Chromebooks will be issued to the students during the first week in school in September.
What if I really want to join the scheme but I simply can’t afford it. What can I do?
A fundamental principle of this scheme is that it is fair and inclusive. We want ALL pupils to benefit from the use of this technology, regardless of financial circumstances. If you are currently facing financial hardship or are in receipt of Free School Meals, please contact the school on firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this further.
Please see below for the Chromebook for Learning Project 2022-23 Flyer which gives an overview of the scheme and the equipment specification.
The school recognises the importance of IT facilities and continues to invest significantly in this area to maintain an infrastructure that allows students to access high quality resources to support their learning.
