I-Pad Loan

I-pad Allocation



The Department for Education (DfE) is providing laptops and tablets to schools to help children and families access remote education during coronavirus (COVID-19).


Schools have been able to order an allocation of devices for:

  • disadvantaged children in years 3 to 11 who do not have access to a device and whose face-to-face education is disrupted
  • disadvantaged children in any year group who have been advised to shield because they (or someone they live with) are clinically extremely vulnerable
  • disadvantaged children in any year group attending a hospital school


Disadvantaged children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are included within this offer. However, if specialist support and equipment is required help may be available through the Family Fund.

How device allocations have been decided

Schools and colleges have received an allocation of devices to be used to support disadvantaged children who are otherwise unable to access remote education.

Examples of this include disadvantaged children:

  • with no digital devices in their household
  • whose only available device is a smartphone
  • with a single device in their household that’s being shared with more than one other family member


At Westcourt we have received an allocation of 36 devices.

This calculation is based on:

  • the number of children in years 3 to 11
  • free school meals data
  • an estimate of the number of devices a school or college already has

If there are widespread school closures, allocations could be temporarily reduced.

If you would like to be considered for the loan of an i-pad please fill in the form that is online or email the same details into

Please complete the form by Tuesday 19th January.  As a school we will then look at the criteria and allocate laptops against this. Please understand that we might not be able to loan laptops to all applicants.
