The 2,633 devices is part of the wider 1.3 million delivered to schools and local authorities in England.

The Government has also partnered with leading mobile network operators to provide free data to disadvantaged families, while more than 54,000 4G routers have been given to schools and colleges across the country.

Henley MP John Howell said: “No child should miss out as a result of the disruption caused by this pandemic.

“That is why it has been our priority to equip those children most in need with the resources they need to succeed.

“I very much welcome that young people across Oxfordshire are continuing to benefit from the raft of measures the Government has put in place to help schools deliver high-quality learning, and the devices we now have received will ensure no child’s education is hindered, regardless of their background or circumstance.

“While we hope that all our children will be back learning in the classroom as soon as possible, we will do everything in our power to give them the world-class education they deserve as they learn at home.”
