Securitas donates multi-touch table to Earls Barton Primary School

13 July 2018

Securitas, leading provider of protective security services, has donated a multi-touch Promethean ActivTable to Earls Barton Primary School, in Northampton. With 470 children at the school, aged from 4 to 11, the teaching team have welcomed the donation.

Mrs Shacklady, Head Teacher at Earls Barton Primary commented: “The children and teachers are very excited by the arrival of the multi-touch table and are queuing up to have a go. The table encourages team work and collaboration, as six children can use it at the same time. Over 230 educational games and activities are installed on the table and will support the school’s teaching curriculum.”

Andrew Oliver, IT Director at Securitas UK commented: “It gives us great pleasure to donate this multi-touch table to the school, where it will be put to great use. Multi-touch tables bring a fun way to help teachers to engage with their students. Young children are used to dealing with new technologies, as part of their play and learning, so the table lends itself perfectly to their development. Securitas is part of many local communities, and we welcome the opportunity to contribute, where we can.”
