Iveson Primary School is located in the Tinshill area of Leeds, West Yorkshire. The school has a strapline which is “Where Aspirations Soar”, which underpins their determination to encourage and nurture the aspirations of every child in their care inspiring them to do better in life.
Whether a child is academic, creative or sporty, lacking in self-esteem or bursting with confidence, the staff at Iveson Primary are dedicated to helping every pupil become an independent, responsible, happy and successful citizen.
The fantastic leadership team at Iveson Primary have invested in all areas of curriculum delivery, and in particular ICT. Each classroom has a large interactive touchscreen, combined with a number of mobile devices to help deliver engaging lessons.
Fast and reliable broadband is essential to teachers who want to be able to make the most of the available online resources and embrace new cloud technologies. Iveson Primary School were in a fortunate position to have a 100Mbps connection, although during peak times there was a noticeable strain on the bandwidth.
With the addition of mobile devices and the school’s willingness to adopt cloud technology, the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) at Iveson Primary were aware their current contract was due for renewal in the coming months.
The SLT instructed their IT Technical Support provider, Primary Technology, to research alternatives that would provide cost-effective connectivity and future-proof Iveson Primary School, helping to achieve their cloud technology goals.
So much of our teaching and admin is done online and we used to suffer from our old connection being saturated. We knew we needed a faster and more reliable connection to the internet and PrimaryT advised us on the best solution for our school. The changeover went smoothly with no issues and our download speed is now 10 times faster.
Jonathan Fuller, Business Manager, Iveson Primary School
Iveson Primary School is benefitting from connectivity and download speeds that are 10 times faster than their previous service. Having fast and reliable access to online tools and learning resources helps support digital literacy skills and improve lesson delivery throughout the school.
Unlike traditional broadband, FTTP is an end-to-end fibre service, without the constraints of the ageing copper network.
Not only has the service provided a huge upgrade to the school’s internet connectivity to improve teaching and learning, but the productivity benefits of ultrafast connectivity have been immediately clear.
The school hasn’t experienced any bandwidth issues using multiple devices or at peak times. The growing popularity of web-based rich content (such as video) and online assessment means that Iveson Primary has a cost-effective, future-proof solution.
