Applecroft Primary School (Welwyn Garden City) have been successful in their application for 5 new PCs to enable the school to better deliver the IT curriculum and successfully run their upgraded version of Windows.
As Odette Coe, Finance and Business Manager put it:
“Having new PC's will enable the IT curriculum to be taught effectively and efficiently. Children will be more engaged and enthusiastic as programmes will not crash and it won't take them an eternity to complete a task.”
If you are thinking of making a similar bid, please be aware that, as a small charity, we can rarely afford to fund the simple upgrade or replacement of core equipment. Successful applications are usually tied into a specific project to improve learning effectiveness (inc. motivation) and/or extend the school’s current offering of subjects and activities.
