Children at a Wallsend school have been honoured for their work with technology.

Beacon Hill School has been awarded the prestigious ICT Mark following an extensive external assessment.

The award recognises the school’s success in developing the strategic use of technology in both administration and across the curriculum.

Parents will have proof that their children are attending a school at the forefront of modern technology.

Headteacher Helen Jones said: “On behalf of Beacon Hill School, I am delighted to be awarded the ICT Mark.

“It recognises our positive approach to the use of technology and the benefits it is bringing to our children.

“We believe that technology can be used in every aspect of learning and that it is essential our children are equipped for the modern world.”

The lead member of staff, Anabel Drought, said: “I am really pleased that the presentation of this award shows recognition of the excellent work that is taking place at Beacon Hill 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 chief executive, said: “Beacon Hill thoroughly deserve the accolade of an ICT Mark accreditation.

“They clearly demonstrate how important it is to take a whole school approach to using technology in schools. We look forward to working with Beacon Hill to demonstrate how technology can have a substantial impact on learner outcomes in the future.”
