A SCHOOL is raising funds to purchase iPads for its pupils to use in their class bubbles.

Parrett and Axe Primary School in Mosterton has set up a Justgiving page to raise the funds to buy enough iPads to share among the children.

The rural school currently has around 140 pupils, with 16 iPads shared across five classes. With the current Covid-19 restrictions in place, sharing of the equipment between classes has had to be limited and the school does not currently have the budget to invest in IT equipment itself.

The children have been taking part in fundraising events alongside the Justgiving page. £740 has been raised already, which is 15 per cent of the fundraising goal of £4,500.
