Additional Mobile Phone Data
The government have announced that they will offer free additional mobile phone internet data for children and families who are relying solely on the internet on their phone to access remote education.
In order to qualify for this you have to meet the following criteria. You:
- do not have fixed broadband at home
- cannot afford additional data for their devices
- are experiencing disruption to their face-to-face education
If you meet these criteria and would like additional mobile phone Internet data then please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 15th January 2021. Please put ‘free mobile data’ as the email subject and include your child’s name and class in the main message of the email.
You will then receive a phone call from a member of staff at school who will go through the scheme in more detail and will collect the personal details required to apply for the data. This will include your mobile phone number, the account holders name and whether you are on a contract or pay as you go.
