The Bridging Portsmouth’s Digital Divide programme makes more deliveries, and receives an award nomination!

The Bridging Portsmouth’s Digital Divide programme has delivered 12 iPads each to Cumberland Infant School and Arundel Court Primary Academy, to help keep the students connected and enable their digital learning.

The devices were delivered last week by Programme Leader Hasmukh “Husky” Patel.

Rebecca Herbert, Head of Cumberland Infant School, said “I know they will make a big difference. During the lockdown it was very difficult for families to have enough technology in their houses, and lending devices was a big help to their engagement with home learning. We hope to do the same to help with their homework, but hopefully not in a lockdown!”

The Programme team has also been nominated in the Teach Portsmouth Awards Live, taking place this evening, Thursday 8th July 2021.

Bridging Portsmouth’s Digital Divide, delivered by Shaping Portsmouth, Portsmouth City Council, The Thinking Schools Academy Trust, and The Hive, is up for the Partnership Award, recognising two or more organisations who have worked together on a project or initiative that has made a difference in their school or college.

Good luck to Husky and the team!
