Year 7 Laptop Initiative

PDF Version

9 September 2021

Dear Parent/Carer


It gives me great pleasure to write to advise you that every Year 7 student in The Gateway Academy has been an opportunity to receive a laptop to enhance their learning in school and to support their independence with their studies outside of school, with their home‐learning.

It is our intention for these laptops to be allocated to students during their tutor time on Friday 24 September 2021, at which time they will be advised to take them home and bring them back on Monday 27 September 2021, for their lessons. In order to ensure the effective roll‐out of this project and for your child to be issued with a laptop, it is imperative that you complete an online Agreement Form, to show that you have read, understood and agree to the  ʹParent Laptop Contract’.  This can be done by clicking the link below or alternatively by scanning the QR code (on attached PDF) with your smart phone camera.   

Please note that you only need to complete this Agreement Form once. Further information regarding the laptop usage and support will be issued to you and your child over the coming two weeks, as part of the laptop roll out.

I am sure that you will agree that this is a fantastic opportunity for your child, which will support them in achieving their full potential here at The Gateway Academy.

If you have any questions with regards to the roll out of laptops for Year 7, then please do not hesitate to email Mrs Bettle (Year 7 Lead Coach) at Thank you for your continued assistance in this matter.

Kind regards

Yours sincerely

Mr R Heighway
