First Class Supply donate 15 Computers to local school!
Here is a lovely article about how we we able to help one of our local schools. As a local independent company, we are really proud of the work we do to help our local community, especially our local schools! Enjoy Ponteland Middle!
First Class Supply, one of the fastest growing independent teaching supply agencies in the North East, has donated 17 computers to local schools.
The Whitley Bay-based firm donated 15 high quality computers over the past year to a number of its partner schools, and is now donating two additional machines to Ponteland Middle School.
Despite having a budget allocation of only £500 per pupil, Ponteland Middle School, which has been rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted for the past five years, is one of the highest achieving middle schools in the country.
Dr Caroline Pryer, Head teacher at Ponteland Middle School, said: “The school has enjoyed a professional and friendly relationship with First Class Supply, and we are very grateful for the support that they have shown us with this donation. Our funding is mainly invested in teachers and teaching assistants, so we are limited with our resources. The donation of these computers will be a massive boost to the school and benefit our students greatly.”
First Class Supply are proud to have worked in partnership with the school for the past nine years and have previously helped out with fundraising initiatives and have sponsored several sports kits.
Lesley Robinson, director of First Class Supply, said: “We are delighted to help out Ponteland Middle School in this way. The school has enjoyed great success with limited resources and funding, which is a testament to the overall running of the school and its teaching.
“We pride ourselves on supporting local interests that benefit both the community and our partner schools. I hope the two donated computers will be of great use to Ponteland Middle School, and I look forward to continuing to work closely with the school for the next nine years and beyond!”
