Carol Tomkinson, headteacher at Keldmarsh Primary School, said: “On behalf of Keldmarsh Primary School, I am delighted to be awarded the ICT Mark. It recognises our positive approach to ICT and the benefits it is bringing to our children.
“We believe that ICT can be used in every aspect of learning and that it is essential our children are equipped for the modern world.
“We are very proud to include the mark on our website and our mailings and this has been noted on a number of occasions, which has further raised the profile of ICT at our school.”
Teacher, Chrissie Shiels, who was involved in ensuring the school was ready for the ICT Mark assessment, added: “I am really pleased that the presentation of this award shows recognition of the excellent ICT work that is taking place at Keldmarsh Primary School.
“Applying for the award really brought into focus the ICT work that we are doing each and every day. All the children and staff deserve credit for this achievement.”
Bernadette Brooks, Naace general manager, said: “Keldmarsh Primary School thoroughly deserves the accolade of an ICT Mark accreditation. They clearly demonstrate how important it is to take a whole school approach to using ICT in schools.
“We look forward to working with Keldmarsh Primary School to demonstrate how ICT can have a substantial impact on learner outcomes in the future.”
