We are one of the 43 schools and colleges chosen by the DfE for their expert use of technology in teaching and learning. We have a local, national and international reputation for our innovative use of technology in education and offer packages of support, targeted to meet the needs of each school, delivered by experienced teachers that can share some of the best practice to get the best out of investment in technology for the support of teaching and learning.

DfE Fully Funded Support Package

DfE Fully Funded Support Package

We provide a DfE fully-funded package of support which is tailored to your needs and is available in three levels: - light-touch, medium-level or intensive-level support - depending upon your current position in building an EdTech strategy. Our programme of support begins with the opportunity to visit and showcase how technology currently is being used within the Academy Trust, allowing you the face-to-face opportunity to ask questions and fuel your thinking as you plan and write your EdTech strategy. We will then work with you to provide an audit that will scope your needs and which will cover some of the following:

  • Reviewing and creating key policies and writing the EdTech strategy   
  • Auditing – infrastructure, device management and procurement strategies
  • Approaches to cutting teacher workload
  • Embedding effective digital tools for ‘quality first’ teaching and learning
  • Developing learning platforms for support with students, assignments and working remotely
  • Cyber security and e-safety principles
  • Accessibility tools and SEND
  • One-to-one device programmes
  • Driving Trust-wide efficiencies
  • Pupil tracking, digital assessments and data analytics
  • Applying computer science, the wider curriculum and STEM
  • Virtual and blended learning
