This is a great initiative to help children and teachers through the challenges of online teaching and learningIMPORTANT - CAN YOU HELP CHILDREN IN BEACONSFIELD WITH SOME UNUSED TECHNOLOGY? 🤔

The Beaconsfield Society has teamed up with The Beaconsfield School to launch a new campaign to help with remote learning whilst we are in the grip of this pandemic.

It is called👇

‘ BeacTech for Schools ‘

We need your tech that you might not be using anymore or you have recently upgraded and so it is sitting spare and unloved now.

You may be aware from the news that schools are suffering from a distinct shortage of laptops to allow remote learning.

Although the Department for Education is providing more laptops and tablets to schools to help children and families access remote education during COVID-19, the Government cannot get the equipment out to schools fast enough. That's where you come in...😁

So if you should have an old laptop that is not being used, or work for a company which has a redundant laptop and it is in working order, please can you donate it to our local schools?

It is so important that we give our children the best start in life and this virus has been such a major disruption to our schools and our children’s ability to learn.

Would you be able to give an old laptop or tablet a new home that could really help with a child’s education?

Below is the basic specification we require any laptop should have:

• Quad core processor
• At least 4GB memory
• At least 64GB storage
• Wireless – at least 802.11ac standard
• Built in webcam and microphone
• 11.6” to 14” screen for portability (but no greater than 15.6” else far too unwieldy to be portable)
• Reasonable battery life (ideally long enough to last a typical school day of use)
• Charging cable

We do appreciate used devices may not meet all the above points, so really anything along these lines would be welcome, even if it does not necessarily tick all the boxes.

The school’s IT Department will be able to wipe any old data from the device, so it is safe for a child to use.

Please contact the Beaconsfield Society and we can supply you with instructions on how to drop off the computer at the school.

Because of COVID-19, we would ask that you do not go to the school without making an appointment first.

Response to Green Belt Preferred Options Consultation

summary this is what we said:-

“Beaconsfield Town Council believes that growth in the Town is essential in order that the community continues to prosper. Without growth it is likely that there will be decline as the existing population ages and the needs of the next generation continue to be ignored.

For the Town Council to support release of Green Belt land it must be demonstrated that exceptional circumstances exist. The development must not only address the key issues of infrastructure but also achieve the maximum amount of affordable housing. In this context the development must seek to include an appropriate volume of housing capped at a maximum of £350,000. .

Further development work will require a detailed framework masterplan, with infrastructure needs such as schools and medical facilities as well as roads and mains, with timing, phasing and so on. These needs should be assessed holistically on a town-wide basis to ensure any complementary enhancements required to the existing town are integrated. We therefore strongly recommend that at least three representatives from the local community including one from the Town Council work with landowners and developers as part of a multi-disciplinary group having responsibility to safeguard the interests of the existing population”.
