BT have partnered up with the DFE and are providing free internet access to schools until July 2021.
The thinking behind this is to give the pupils in your schools who may not have access to internet at home. The main criteria is based on the number of free school meals that pupils have at the school. The process is very easy.
Along with the existing DFE scheme for providing Wi-Fi dongles to the pupils or are affected. If the pupils in your area live in a BT hotspot they will be able to within the comfort of their homes connect to the internet using the BT service.
One of our schools has successfully already done this for their pupils, and BT provided passwords to access the BT Wi-Fi, so it’s definitely worth your school applying, if there are some children that are still not able to get online currently.
Here is the link on the offering from BT and an additional link to apply for the service from BT.
