CHILDREN from St Peters Catholic Primary School, Doncaster and Southfield Primary School in Armthorpe have been given a helping hand with their lockdown learning after Premier Partnership donated some digital devices.

With school closed during lockdown and children having to home school, Premier Partnership donated 20 tablets to each school to distribute as they felt necessary amongst their pupils.

Stella Groarke, Headteacher of St Peters Catholic Primary School said, “I want to thank you for the very generous donation of 20 tablets for our pupils to access remote and online learning.”

Referring to the difficulties some families faced during the home schooling, she continued “It has been something of a challenge ensuring that learning is able to continue in lockdown, especially with the limitations of device sharing in many homes. Your donation has really supported many of our families who would otherwise be struggling. Thank you for helping us to ensure that our pupils don’t fall behind.”

Rachel Wood, Year 1 teacher at Southfield Primary School was also delighted with the donation, “A while ago you donated a bundle of tablets for us to use. It has taken a long time, but we wanted to say thank you so much.”

“They have made such a difference to our learning, and we have been using them to extend our learning opportunities.”

Lisa Deniz HR & Payroll coordinator at Premier Partnership said, “We were happy to support the local community, especially during home schooling. Providing our unused tablets to the schools assisted the children to access their learning whilst in lockdown and everyone at Premier was very pleased to be able to help our local schools by providing the tablets.”

Premier Partnership have recently been nominated for an industry award for their commitment to training in the pandemic as they continue to show their dedication to both business and communities during the last 16 months.
