The Tyne Tunnels have donated a number of computers to Thomas Bewick school, a specialist provision for children and young people with autism in Newcastle upon Tyne, that will be used by the children to help learn IT skills.
TT2 are currently in the middle of an upgrade as the business looks to expand in the run up to Tyne Pass, a project which will see the transport route move to open road tolling by the end of 2021.
Part of the expansion will see upgrades to IT systems and an increase in jobs within TT2, so the company are donating a number of computers to the school.
Daley Barber-Allen, Head Teach at Thomas Bewick said “’We are very grateful for such a generous donation. We are currently developing our computing curriculum and we are also creating new planning and resource areas for staff, so our new computers will come in very useful for pupils and staff. Thank you for thinking of us!”
Thomas Bewick cater for children and young people aged 2-19 years with a range of abilities and differences associated with the autism spectrum and all of the pupils have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).
