School in front with IT
CHILDREN at Birkenshaw First and Nursery School are at the forefront of modern technology – and that's official.
Following an extensive external assessment the school has been awarded the prestigious ICT Mark by Becta, the government-funded body responsible for promoting the use of ICT in Britain's schools and colleges.
It recognises the school's success in using information technology both in the classroom and in the running of the school.
Headteacher Angela Holt said: "We are 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."
