All children have access to a home-learning device

At Excelsior we made a promise to our students that every family would be able to successfully home-learn using a technology device and in order to support them we have distributed 270 laptops to families.

As our schools and parents navigate through this new way of learning, we have a duty to ensure they are receiving the most support possible. The schools enlisted a team which reviewed through phone calls, door knocking and IT monitoring data, each pupil’s access to and uptake of the live and recorded lessons the teachers were providing.

Hazel Pulley CEO, “We whole heartedly believe that every child deserves the opportunity to have an education and whether we are in a pandemic or not, it is my job to ensure we are doing everything we can to effectively teach all our children. I am proud of Excelsior and all the schools within our MAT who are continuing to show true resilience and determination daily. Parents are doing an exceptional job in these difficult times and we want them all to know we are here to support them as much as their children, after all we’re all in this together.”
