About us

Hello, we are a 1 form entry Primary school based in a low privileged local area of Tameside, we are known as TEAM HEYS! Our children thrive to learn and with the modern day becoming more and more about Technology we are wanting to upgrade our computing within our school to help our children all learn to the best of our abilities and for the teachers to be able to teach well with the right tools. 

What do we want?

We are wanting to upgrade our laptops, ipads and buy beebops robots and microbits to enhance  EYFS, KS1  and KS2 computing. 

Who is this for?

This is for our whole school, to use across a range of subjects.

Why do we want it?

Having laptops that do not just keep losing battery power after 10 minutes will enable children to have adequate and regular computing lessons / activities taught more frequently and will aid learning across all year groups through out the school and also help the mindfulness of teachers and reduce the stress. It will fulfill all pupils potential within their learning. 


Total = £1,468.64  (incl VAT* & delivery)


If we're fortunate enough to raise more than our target, then we would also like to buy Apple macs / Ipads / brand new laptops / computers for the whole school
