Second award for use of ICT

A SCHOOL has won a second award for its use of ICT in school.

Woodlawn School, in Whitley Bay, has been successful in securing the prestigious Naace Impact Award 2012 for ‘supporting inclusion in any phase’.

The Naace ICT Impact Awards demonstrate how pupils can fully engage with their learning in technology-rich environments.

The award for ‘supporting inclusion in any phase’ recognises Woodlawn’s dedication to embedding ICT into teaching and learning in a way which means that is used naturally and appropriately by all pupils and staff.

Headteacher Simon Ripley said: “This award means a lot to the school.

“It is recognition of the dedication of all staff to maximise our highly effective use of ICT and the positive impact it has for our pupils on a daily basis.”

Last year, Woodlawn’s use of ICT was recognised at the Northern Grid ICT in Education Awards.
