About us

Southmead Primary School is incredibly fortunate to be situated on the eastern side of Braunton, within the North Devon biosphere, which is globally recognised as an ‘area of outstanding beauty’. 

What do we want?

We want to improve our ICT provision across the school. We would like to buy visualisers for all classrooms to allow children to see their work on the interactive whiteboards, provide videos to support learning as well as allowing them to show small objects to the whole class during shared discussion.

We would like new laptops for our new Computing Suite, to replace the classroom desktops, which are too slow for many of our new teaching applications. We also plan to purchase more Chromebooks and allow our ICT provision to lead our pupils into the technological future, while not forgetting the importance of handwriting and the multitude of practical activities.

We would also ideally like Beebots for Maths and Computing to develop direction and programming skills, and further improve hardware throughout the school.

Who is this for?

This is for all pupils in our school, to use across a range of subjects.

Why do we want it?

With our budgets being continuously put under more pressure the funds raised will make a huge difference to your pupils. Their learning will benefit and it will ensure that they fulfil their learning and technological potential.


We would like to purchase:
