Long Sutton schools get home learning boost from Freemasons




Home learning will be easier for children at two Long Sutton schools after a generous donation.

The town’s Freemasons have given £2,000 each to Long Sutton Primary School and University Academy Long Sutton (UALS), to buy laptop computers.

A UALS spokesman said: “We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the Long Sutton Freemasons.

“This money will further help both schools support the remote education of young people in the local community.

“While both have operated the Government scheme for laptops, circumstances have changed for some families, and some children have joined each school since the initial request for devices was made earlier in the year.

“Furthermore, sadly, some families do not meet the criteria for a device request.

“The devices we are now able to purchase will enable both schools to support more families in the community.”

“Despite not being within the same Trust, both schools work together, with one single, overarching aim, to provide high quality education for the young people of Long Sutton and surrounding areas.

“This is a great example of the local community all working together”.
