A Gedling school has made an urgent appeal to help its pupils get online so they can do home learning during this latest lockdown.

Willow Farm Primary School on Willow Lane has issued an appeal as laptops currently on loan to pupils from the school will be needed back, leaving them without one at home.

In a post on community Facebook pages the school said: “We are working with the charity Retech to repurpose old laptops into simple devices that will enable to access home learning during lockdown.

“The charity will professionally wipe the laptops of old files, software and operating systems so there are no data security worries. The laptop will then get new software installed on it and be given to a child who we know needs one for their home learning and future homeworking.

They added: “The charity can repurpose almost any laptop, don’t think yours will be too old.”

The school are asking if laptop power leads can be included when making a donation if possible.

Anyone who has a laptop to spare can drop them off at the school during school hours (wait at the gates and ring the buzzer) or they can be collected.
