Following my previous communication that we were expecting the Chromebooks to arrive in October, we have been given an update on the Chromebooks which are due to arrive in the country next week. We are really excited by this news. Chromebooks are currently due to be delivered to us soon after, which means we should receive them shortly before or during half term.
Assuming this is the case our aim will be to have them set up and handed to students as soon as possible. Due to the time it will take to set them up we would like to prepare for the potential that they may not be handed out until the week after half term, although obviously we will do our best to distribute as many as possible before then.
We are still planning a Chromebook day for Year 7 where they will be given a range of experiences in using the devices. Further information about this day will follow when we know the exact date.
Thank you for your patience. We do appreciate that these delays have caused a disruption to the start of the term. I am extremely thankful for the number of parents that have communicated their understanding.
