Pupils, staff and Governors at Bilston CE Primary are celebrating after being awarded the Kite Mark award for outstanding ICT provision. The school were recently notified by Naace, the Education Technology Association, who conducted an assessment of provision at the school in Albany Crescent, Bilston in September.
Senior and subject leadership were seen as a strength of the provision with the report commenting on “a shared and devolved responsibility for the vision and ICT has an extremely high profile within the school”.
The school has developed a scheme of work for computing which is matched to the needs of pupils within school and supported through the work of the subject leader Mrs Donna Robinson. A highly sophisticated assessment regime has been developed which supports the Scheme of Work and allows for target setting and the evaluation of impact.
Mrs Robinson, Senior Leader at the School, commented: ‘There is clear evidence of the impact of technology enhanced learning across the whole school. Pupils speak with enthusiasm and pride about their work and are clearly making significant progress towards meeting the demands of the National Curriculum for Computing and applying the skills across the curriculum.
The school is only the fourth school in Wolverhampton to receive the prestigious Naace Quality Mark.
