Stevenson Welcomes Digital Packs for North-East Schools

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed a digital donation to help support secondary school pupils in the north-east.

It comes after supermarket Asda announced it was working with Dell Technologies to donate 7,000 laptops to partner schools across the UK to help tackle digital exclusion.

Fraserburgh North School and Peterhead Academy will both receive 10 laptop bundles each.

Each tech bundle includes a headset and dongle and laptops will include a one-year warranty and technical support.

According to Ofcom, around 9% of children in the UK - between 1.1million and 1.8million - do not have access to a laptop, desktop or tablet at home.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“I welcome this funding from Asda to help support schools in the north-east which will help to close the gap in digital poverty.

“The coronavirus pandemic has emphasised the very real challenges and disparity across society in access to digital technologies. This support will go a long way to help pupils in their learning both in school and at home.”
