Alwoodley Primary is a two-form entry Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ primary school on the outskirts of Leeds.
The Senior Leadership Team pursue excellence in all areas of the school, and in particular ICT, putting the learning and well-being of its pupils at the heart of all its thinking and planning. This constant drive to continuously improve is an exceptional example of their high quality of teaching and learning.
Alwoodley Primary have achieved national awards, accreditations and kite marks seeking new awards and revalidation at the highest level, whilst receiving recognitions for the coveted ICT Excellence Award – Best school in Great Britain for ICT learning experience.
Throughout the school, there were issues of poor Wi-Fi connectivity, network issues and in general a large amount of technology that was not being used effectively, or required investment.
School leaders were keenly aware that technology was moving fast, and that a solution was needed to address the issues, which would allow teachers to deliver interactive and engaging content to pupils.
Listening to what school leaders wanted to achieve, Primary Technology were commissioned as their new IT Support provider to perform a comprehensive technical audit and create a development plan, to help identify issues and provide solutions to reinvigorate the use if ICT in school.
The development plan would be fully discussed with school leaders, so that decisions could be made about prioritising any required investment over a three-year period.
Staff confidence has increased in technology across the school. We used to have major issues with our wireless and getting devices on the network, with the help of Primary Technology we now have no problem getting new devices on our network. Thanks to the support and planning we have received, our only struggle now is finding time to keep up with best practices.
