DfE Temporary Increased Data Allowance for Mobile Phone Users

If you have limited broadband or data and this is restricting your child’s access to remote learning, your

mobile provider may be able to help. This DfE scheme temporarily increases data allowances for mobile phone users on certain networks. This is so that children and young people can access remote education if their face-to-face education is disrupted.

Fairhouse Primary can request mobile data increases for children and young people who meet all 4 of these criteria:

  • Do not have access to a fixed broadband connection at home
  • Cannot afford the additional data needed to access devices for education
  • Have access to a mobile device that uses a participating network
  • Are facing disruption to their face-to-face education, or have been advised not to attend school (such as not being able to attend school due to lockdown or isolation)

Networks currently eligible for this scheme are:

  • EE
  • Three
  • Sky Mobile
  • Tesco Mobile
  • Virgin Mobile
  • O2

Before you apply for this, please read the document DfE data Allowance Information, paying particular attention to the privacy statement on page 4.

Home learning

If your child is not in school due to isolation from Covid-19, then we have set work for your child to access using our Purple Mash platform.  Here your child will be set work that is  in line with the class's current learning in class.  If your child's year group bubble is isolating, this work will include recorded sessions from the class teacher.  If you do not have access to a tablet, laptop or a PC, then we can provide you with printed learning tasks for your child to complete at home.  Please let our school office know and we will organise this work for your child.  We may even be able to offer your child a lap top.  Please speak to one of our office staff or message us on our Studybugs app.

Children can complete the tasks that they are set, but can also access many more learning tasks that they choose to do. 

Teachers can see who has completed the set work and will be able to see how well they have done. 

Please read our parents' guide to remote learning by clicking here.

We also have Times Table Rockstars for your child to access, IXL (for years 5 and 6) and Mathswatch (for years 4, 5 and 6). 

In addition to this, we have collated a list of online resources and websites that will be useful for you and your child (there are many, many more!) during this time:
