McDonald’s franchisee Glyn Pashley donated the devices to Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village (DSLV) as part of the restaurant’s aim to work with police and schools in recognising positive behaviour and stamping out anti-social behaviour in the local community.

The McDonald’s team is supporting an initiative with DSLV where two students will be rewarded for their good behaviour.

Every tutor each school term nominates students who have shown effort and progress in their academic studies who then gets entered a raffle.

The two golden tickets are then picked out by the headteacher.

The two winners will be rewarded with a brand-new iPad to encourage positivity and performance in the classroom. Merits are awarded for how well students conduct themselves, with them being rewarded for tasks like handing homework in on time.

Franchisee Glyn Pashley, along with General Manager, Zoe Thomas were invited to the academy to handover the six iPads at the school assembly and help present the first set of winners with their prize.

Glyn Pashley, who owns and operates 14 restaurants across Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Leicestershire, including the restaurant in Daventry said: “It is so important to get involved in local community projects. I’m pleased we can be involved in this initiative to encourage positive behaviour in the classroom and I look forward to hearing about the pupil’s achievements.”

Roger Eadon, Headteacher at DSLV said: “We are extremely grateful to McDonald’s for their ongoing support. Their generous provision of six ipads, two per term, has resulted in a reward that is extremely valued by the students. The last recipient this year was actually punching the air in delight as he walked to the stage to collect his prize!”

This is the latest initiative to recognise good behaviour and crack down on anti-social behaviour in the community.

Back in January, franchisee Glyn Pashley provided funds for a CCTV system on Vicar Lane, Daventry in conjunction with Daventry Town Council. Supported by the local police, the 360-degree CCTV system installation is located between the McDonald’s entrance and the Post Office.
