Increase Mobile Network Data to Support Remote Learning

Thursday 7th January


Dear Parents/Carers,


The government have released a scheme which allows schools to apply for temporary increases in data allowance for mobile phone users on certain networks.  This is so that children and young people can access remote education resources whilst their face to face education is disrupted.


As a school, we can request mobile data increases for our pupils if you

  • Do not have fixed broadband at home
  • Cannot afford additional data for your devices
  • Are experiencing disruption in face to face learning due to closure, self-isolating or being clinically extremely vulnerable


Children with access to a mobile phone on one of the following networks may be able to benefit:

  • Three
  • Smarty
  • Virgin Mobile
  • EE
  • Tesco Mobile
  • Sky Mobile

Other providers may join the scheme at a later stage.


If you would like Oaklands to apply for the extra data allowance on the behalf of your child, we will need the following information:


  • The name of the account holder
  • The number of the mobile device
  • The mobile network of that device from the list above


Please email the details to


Many thanks,


Sarah Osborne (Headteacher)
