Rotary Club and High Sheriff fund laptops for Mark Rutherford


Bedfordshire Learning Link School Partnership and the High Sheriff of Bedfordshire support Mark Rutherford School with a donation of 51 Laptops

Mark Rutherford School have been lucky enough to secure some funding from the High Sheriff of Bedfordshire and Bedford Rotary Clubs to provide digital devices for any student, not just disadvantaged pupils, who do not have access to digital devices.

At a time when students are very likely to be affected by disruption to face-to-face education at their school, this meaningful donation will help students and families access remote education during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Headteacher Mrs Bloor said: “Students learn in many different ways and technology can provide differentiation in the classroom, giving all students the opportunity for success by allowing them to work through projects at their own pace.”

Mrs Lousada, the High Sheriff of Bedford said: “We are keen to ensure we help your students and specifically, to help achieve digital equality. These laptops are to support students who either, do not currently have access to a computer, or to siblings that need to share their home equipment.

“It will allow them the time they need to focus on their work and improve their learning.”
