Staff and pupils at a South Shields school are celebrating their latest award.

The information and communications technology (ICT) work of children at Hadrian Primary School, in Baring Street, has been recognised with the award of the prestigious ICT Mark for the third time.

The award lasts for three years and celebrates the school’s outstanding use of technology to support teaching, learning and school administration.

Rachel King, ICT Manager, said: “To be computer literate is an increasingly essential life skill and our pupils experience ICT as a daily part of their school lives. Pupils have their own fruit shop and calculate their costs and profit using spread sheets; we have a library system that pupils can checkout and return their books and a homework club providing our pupils with internet access.”

Pupils and staff are thrilled to see their hard work has paid off with renewal of the ICT Mark.”
