ILKLEY'S MP Robbie Moore has welcomed the announcement that pupils across the Bradford District have benefited from 5,503 laptops and tablets to date, as the Government hits an important milestone in its rollout of devices to support disadvantaged young people.

More than 1 million laptops and tablets have been delivered to schools and local authorities across England, including across the Keighley and Ilkley constituency, as part of a £400 million investment.

Mr Moore said:“I very much welcome that young people across Keighley and Ilkley are continuing to benefit from the raft of measures the Government has put in place to help schools deliver high-quality learning, and the extra devices we now have received will ensure no child’s education is hindered, regardless of their background or circumstance."
