Last May, we helped Hob Moor Community Primary Academy in Acomb to buy 30 new Google Chrome Books so more pupils could access digital technology and learn reading, writing, mathematics and digital skills as part of the school curriculum.
The donation of funds for the Chromebooks marked the start of our involvement in a number of community-based projects during the installation of UFO, as we roll our full fibre internet across York and which will reach 55,000 homes and businesses by 2020.
Digital technology is the future of pupil learning and engagement, so we are delighted to have contributed to the futureproofing of Hob Moor Primary students’ education, to make a difference to the academy and support the children’s learning.
Head Teacher at Hob Moor Community Primary Academy, Alex Winter said:
"We are really thrilled with the Chromebooks and would like to thank York’s UFO for supporting us. The level of engagement from pupils and the results obtained from this style of learning meant that we were keen to increase access for pupils to digital technology. Not only that, but digital is the way we will all learn in future and so the more we can help children to learn these skills the better. Having 30 more will make a real difference across the academy".
