Scottish School Retains Prestigious ICT Mark Award
Children at Jordanhill School in Glasgow are at the forefront of using information and communications technology (ICT) to enhance their work, and that’s official!
Following an extensive external assessment Jordanhill has been re-awarded the prestigious ICT Mark. Jordanhill is the only school in Scotland to currently hold the ICT Mark and has done so since 2007. The school previously won the UK wide Becta award for Leadership in ICT in 2006.
The ICT Mark recognises the school’s success in developing the strategic use of ICT in both administration and across the curriculum. Parents have proof that their children are attending a school at the forefront of modern technology.
Anne Fraser convenor of the Board of managers said “The school is determined that all local children will have the best opportunity to excel in the jobs market of the future. The staff should be congratulated on this wonderful achievement. This demonstrates the excellent ICT management and teaching that is taking place in our school.”
Rector Dr Paul Thomson commented “I am delighted we have been 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.
We are very proud to include the mark on our website and our mailings and this has been noted on a number of occasions, which has further raised the profile of ICT at Jordanhill School.
I am really pleased that the presentation of this award shows recognition of the excellent ICT work that is taking place at Jordanhill 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.”
Mark Chambers, Naace CEO, said “Jordanhill school thoroughly deserve the accolade of an ICT Mark accreditation. They clearly demonstrate how important it is to take a whole school approach to using ICT in schools. We look forward to working with Jordanhill to demonstrate how ICT can have a substantial impact on learner outcomes in the future.”
