YOUNGSTERS at a small village first school in Worcestershire are looking forward to new and improved IT lessons after leading developer Stoford donated new laptops.
Crowle CE First School, in the village of Crowle, which has just 62 pupils from the ages of four to nine, was provided with funding from Stoford, which is developing the nearby Worcester Six Business Park, for the equipment.
Martina Abbott, headteacher at the school, said: “This generous donation is going to make all the difference to our IT lessons. It means we can revive the curriculum to teach the children mouse control and touch typing, which you can’t do on tablets.
“Our existing computers are very old but because our budget is so small, we had no idea how we could replace them, so this provision is not just timely, it is also very welcome indeed and we can’t thank Stoford enough.”
Gerard Ludlow, director at Stoford, said: “We were only too pleased to help Crowle First School with its wish to buy new IT equipment for the pupils and hope the children enjoy their lessons with the laptops.”
