Hi

As a busy mum of 4 I'm finding this 3rd lockdown very hard. We are told to home school and do home learning and become teachers but what about the households who have no devices to do work on. No devices to receive work from teachers. No devices to communicate with the school and teachers.

I understand the lockdown is important to protect the NHS and save lives but our children and there education is important too.

I as a parent think devices like ipads should be provided to all kids in education. As why should any child be left out or fall behind because they unfortunately don't have devices available at home.

This lockdown could go on for months and iam worried about my children as I have 3 in full time school but just my mobile phone to access any work.

Our school have put children on a waiting list as they don't have enough to go around i think its the government's responsibility to provide devices to children so they can keep going with there education and maintain a good routine of doing school work. Our kids have missed out on a lot already.
