FOLLOWING an extensive external assessment St George’s First School in Redditch has been awarded the prestigious ICT Mark, acknowledging it is at the forefront of using technology.

The award recognises the school’s success in developing the strategic use of technology in both
administration and across the curriculum.

Headteacher Caroline Redfern said: “On behalf of St George’s School, I am delighted to be awarded the ICT Mark. It recognises our positive approach to technology and the benefits it is bringing to our children and demonstrates the excellent ICT management and teaching that is taking place in our school.

"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.

"We are very proud to include the mark on our website and our mailings, which has further raised the profile of the use of technology at the school. Our last OFSTED report positively acknowledged
that we had received the ICT Mark in the description of the school”

The lead member of staff, Jeanna Weller, (ICT Subject Leader), involved in ensuring the school
was ready for ICT Mark assessment, said: "I am really pleased that the presentation of this award shows recognition of the excellent work taking place at St George’s 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.”
