How can schools secure the necessary investment for resources?

'During lockdown there were a lot of organisations and charities that were willing to work with schools who needed help. All we had to do was put our hand up. So I would encourage schools to make the most of their local network. And if there isn't a local network there to support, be brave, make that phone call to a financial institution or to a company who are looking to support their community and just ask the question. You can be creative with how you ask for that support. We found great success with a matched funding donations where we would commit a certain amount of money and a charity or organisation would match the remainder'.

'We took advantage of LGfL's Bridge the Divide offer, where we were able to secure a large number of Chromebooks at a very reasonable cost. And as a result of that, we've been able to make sure that every single child across the trust has access to their own Chromebook that they can use at school or at home if they need to.'
