Treorchy Comprehensive School gains prestigious ICT Mark Award
Children at Treorchy Comprehensive School are at the forefront of using information and communications technology (ICT) to enhance their work, and that’s official!
Following an extensive external assessment the school has been awarded the prestigious ICT Mark.
The award recognises the school’s success in developing the strategic use of technology in both administration and across the curriculum. Parents now have proof that their children are attending a school at the forefront of modern technology.
The lead member of staff, Marc De Benedictis (ICT Coordinator), involved in ensuring the school was ready for ICT Mark assessment, commented:
“I am extremely pleased and proud with the presentation of this award. This recognises the excellent work that is taking place at Treorchy Comprehensive. Applying for the award really brought into focus the ICT work that each department is doing each and every day. All the pupils and staff deserve credit for this achievement.”
Mark Chambers, Naace CEO, who assessed the school personally, said "Treorchy 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 the school to demonstrate how technology can have a substantial impact on learner outcomes in the future.”
Recent ICT developments at the school include the introduction of iPads for staff and pupils. The school is also in the process of becoming a Microsoft Academy, demonstrating its use of, and commitment to, emerging technologies in order to provide its pupils with the best possible teaching and learning experience.
