Kate: We have now purchased 4 devices as they have really helped students unable to attend through illness and supported reintegration back in to the classroom for those struggling to go in person to the lessons through anxiety
Nicole: Unfortunately the AV1 system has not worked for my setting as we couldn't connect it to the internet.
Lucy Burbridge, SENCO: In a secondary school the logistics of moving it between different classes can be difficult, but otherwise it is great.
