A Hatfield school is asking for donations to fund tablets and data packages for families that do not have internet at home.
St Philip Howard Catholic Primary School has found – after moving most of its learning online – that some parents are struggling with home schooling under the COVID-19 lockdown.
They explained that home learning packs were provided for the first two weeks but that has not been sustainable as the lockdown continues.
In addition to ongoing learning and development, another key area of concern for staff is the mental health of their pupils.
Some pupils can take advantage of being able to see and talk to their teachers and classmates through Skype and Facetime but some pupils cannot.
