ALTIA-ABM DONATES LAPTOPS TO PRIMARY SCHOOL TO HELP WITH ONLINE LEARNING

In a bid to support the local community during these unprecedented times, Nottingham-based Altia-ABM has donated a number of laptops to Beardall Fields Nursery & Primary School in Hucknall with further laptops to follow in the next few weeks.

The firm is a specialist software developer headquartered in the UK with 28 staff based in Nottingham Science & Technology Park.

Rob Sinclair, CEO of Altia-ABM said: “We’re delighted to be able to help at this very difficult time. Schools have had to cope with virtual learning as well as in-school learning this year for the first time and we wanted to offer our support. It’s important that all children have access to a suitable device to help them connect with online resources and to develop their digital skills.”

Katherine Collins, Head Teacher of Beardall Fields Primary & Nursery School said:  “The laptops are a really generous donation and will be used as part of our remote learning plan during the COVID-19 pandemic. This will enable children to be able to access online learning from home.”

Lizzie Downs, Early Years Teacher, said:  “This will really help with children's learning both in school and at home especially during this difficult time. The children enjoy the variety of activities that they can access on a computer so these will really help with their development.”

Altia-ABM provides software for all types of investigation and works with police forces and law enforcement agencies. The firm sponsors SOCEX and the national Keith Hughes Awards, which honour police officers who have made a significant contribution to tackling fraud and financial crime.
