Age of students: 5-11

Percentage eligible for free school meals: 19.6%


About us

We are a larger than average Primary School based in the North of Sheffield, serving the Parson Cross housing estate.   

We support our children in developing positive attitudes towards, and behaviour for, learning.  We focus on developing the children as “Monteney Learners” and have developed a pedagogy based around Project Based Learning and Immersive Learning. We want all our children to be excited by learning, to take risks, seek challenges, ask questions and persevere. 

What do we want?

We currently have 17 iPads in school which are used by our Monteney Learners daily. We would like to purchase another 3 iPads to complete the set in our Multidock charging unit. The target amount includes the cost of 3 iPads, Griffin survivor cases, and mobile manager licenses.

Who is this for?

Children from Foundation stage up to KS2 will benefit from the use of the iPads across all subjects.  The iPads will also be used in targeted group work with our children that have additional educational needs.

Why do we want it?

Having additional iPads will better support our Monteney Learners, developing their literacy and numeracy skills, and enhancing their communication skills. Children are enthused and engaged when using the iPads.

The iPads will also be used at our parents coffee mornings to promote the importance of the safe use of technology.


3 x iPad wi-fi 5th generation, 32gb - space grey @ £256.24 + vat = £916

3 x Griffin survivor iPad case @ £12.50 x vat = £45

3 x Lightspeed mobile manager license @ £12.75 + vat = £45.90

Total = £1,006.90 (inc VAT & delivery)


If we're fortunate enough to raise more than our target, then we would like to buy further iPads.
