School wins ICT award.

A Tyneside primary school has become one of the first in the country to be awarded a new information technology mark.

Wharrier Street Primary, in Newcastle, was one of just 20 schools across the country to pilot a new framework designed by British Educational Communications & Technology Agency to help schools make better use of information and communications technology (ICT).

To gain the ICT Mark, Wharrier Street had to demonstrate it uses ICT to support all learners and all school activities, from the leadership all the way to the classroom.

The inspection focused on pupils' progress in ICT capability and the impact of ICT on attitudes and behaviour and pupils' progress.

Headteacher Bernie Doherty said: "We're delighted to receive the ICT Mark. It recognises the positive impact our approach to ICT is having throughout the school."
