A BARRY primary school has proved it has its finger on the keyboard by scooping the prestigious ICT Mark award for the second time.
Children at Holton Primary school, Barry, are officially at the forefront of using technology to enhance their work, following an extensive external assessment.
The award recognises the school’s success in developing the strategic use of technology in both administration and across the curriculum.
Head teacher Andrew Gilbert said he was delighted the school had got the ICT Mark.
He said: “It recognises our positive approach to the use of technology and the benefits it is bringing to our children. We believe that technology can be used in every aspect of learning and that it is essential our children are equipped for the modern world.”
ICT subject leader Roger Hardy, who was involved in ensuring the school was ready for ICT Mark assessment, said he was really pleased the award recognised the excellent work at the school.
He said: “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.”
