Home Access - the numbers for Kent!
We have been keeping track of the number of approved applications for Home Access laptop and Internet packages in Kent. We have figures associated with each school, and have used them to produce a summary report. The report highlights the numbers by District, and can be found by clicking on the image below. We also have totals for each school, and you can find out how to obtain these for your school through the next e-bulletin. District teams will be sent the totals for schools in their area in the next week or so.
