What did they need?
A parental contribution scheme to help them roll out an iPad 1:1 scheme to Year 8 boys.
How did we help?
Starting from the ground up, we helped the school train staff, ensure pupils’ safety online and get parents and governors on board with the scheme. We then provided a secure purchasing portal for parents, and helped the school’s IT team configure and deploy all 400 devices.
What were the benefits?
- Increased collaboration between staff.
- Access to IT resources at desk at any time – not just when the computer lab is free!
- Access to a huge range of new teaching and learning materials.
- Increased engagement from pupils.
- Improved independent learning.
“We have found Jigsaw24 to be a very helpful partner. The whole process is one that is fraught with pitfalls, and having a partner that is prepared to be there for you, to offer you advice, to come in and help to resolve issues, to help provide training for teachers, to be there at meetings for parents, is fantastic.”
Eric Wolton, Assistant Head and Biology Teacher, The Royal Grammar School.
