DfE Laptops for Disadvantaged Children Programme

The DfE’s laptops for disadvantaged children programme is distributing laptops to Local Authorities and Trusts. This loan is to support those children in their learning and access during the restrictions imposed by Covid19.

Recognising that safeguarding children online is critical and a significant part of the Local Authorities and Trust’s safeguarding obligations, our partners at SWGfL have worked with a number of Local Authorities to create online safety resource packs to protect and inform those receiving a device. 

These are pre packed A4 sized packs containing age appropriate printed content from NSPCC, InternetMatters and SWGfL to accompany the distribution of laptops for disadvantaged children to support primary and secondary aged children, their parents and families in effectively and safely using the device and connectivity.
