We are writing to make you aware of a Government scheme that is in place which will see data allowances increased on mobile devices to help children and young people to access remote education while face-to-face education is disrupted.

Who can get help?

As a school, The Edge Academy can request on your behalf mobile data increases for children and young people who:

  • do not have fixed broadband at home
  • cannot afford additional data for their devices
  • are experiencing disruption to their face-to-face education

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

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

How to request a data increase

If you feel that your child meets the outlined above, please contact the school by telephone, via our social media platforms or by emailing adam.smith@theedgeacademy.co.uk

For each request, we need to know:

  • the name of the account holder (this must be the bill payer or person who is registered to the SIM card)
  • the number of the mobile device (a number beginning with ‘07’)
  • the mobile network of that device (for example Three)
  • whether you pay monthly or pay as you go.

Yours faithfully,


Adam Smith

Vice Principal
