cash given to deprived schools for IT equipment

Written by on 22 July 2021

10 schools in some of the most deprived parts of Stoke-on-Trent were given a thousand pounds to buy urgent IT equipment during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Genr8 Developments who worked with the City Council on the Smithfield city centre development, donated the cash so pupils could access lessons remotely whilst they were at home and to buy more advanced equipment ready for when they returned to school. 

The donations were a much needed help to schools as they dealt with the changing teaching environments.

The Crescent Academy in Meir was one of the schools to benefit.
