Dear Parents/Carers,

We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to be part of the school’s new Chromebook scheme. Your child will be able to take advantage of a unique package, which we have put together, to have a Google Chromebook to enhance learning both in school and at home.

In the current Covid19 environment, the launching of the Chromebook scheme is an important part of the school’s preparations to enable all students to access learning both in the classroom and at home, using the Google Classroom suite as the main platform for learning.

Parents of Year 7, 8, 9, 10 students who wish to take advantage of this offer will pay a monthly fee across 2 years that includes everything from the cost of the Chromebook, a case, full warranty and insurance over the 2 years (that also has no excess for theft and accidental damage) as well as a Google maintenance licence, so it will automatically connect to our school’s Wi-Fi. There is also an option to pay for the device in one instalment.

Parents of Year 11 students who wish to take advantage of this offer will pay a monthly fee across 9 months that includes everything from the cost of the Chromebook, a case, full warranty and insurance over the term of 2 years (that also has no excess for theft and accidental damage) as well as a Google maintenance licence, so it will automatically connect to our school’s Wi-Fi. There is also an option to pay for the device in one instalment.

If your child is eligible for free school meals (FSM) a discount code can be applied to your order. The FSM discount code is RMS0071, you can add it in the box on the portal, and the pricing will be reduced by £5.00 a month. When the code is used the payment options change to monthly only as the free school meal discount is applied by the school monthly.  The school will verify your FSM status before the order is completed.

To participate in the scheme and to nominate which device and payment plan you wish to use, please follow the link https://edutech.click/RMS-chromebook-scheme

to the portal containing all the documentation relating to the Chromebook programme including frequently asked questions.

Please note the 2020 scheme is open for 3 weeks and will close on 16thOctober to ensure delivery for November 2020. To find out more click on this link.
