SEATON Infant School has won a national award for its use of computers in the classroom.
The school has been awarded the ICT Mark by Becta, the Government-funded body responsible for promoting the use of computers in Britain’s schools and colleges.
Headteacher Lesley Grace said: “We are delighted with the award. It recognises our positive approach to computer technology and the benefits it is bringing to our children.
“We believe that ICT can be used in every aspect of learning and that it is essential our children are equipped for the modern world.”
Neil McLean, of Becta, said: “Seaton infants thoroughly deserve the accolade of an ICT Mark.
“They clearly demonstrate how important it is to take a holistic approach to using ICT in schools.
“Their investment in new technology has contributed to substantial improvements in learning.”
