Digital Schools Award
Yesterday, we were very pleased to officially be recognised as the first school in England to achieve Digital Schools Award status. This is a national awards scheme to promote, recognise and encourage a whole school approach to the use of digital technology in nursery, primary, special education and secondary schools.
An awards ceremony was held in the Top Hall at Bowes where children and staff showcased how we use digital technology to support learning. Our visitors included representatives from the Digital Schools programme, the sponsors of the award 'HP' and 'AMD' and members of Connect Education Trust. It was a fantastic event and the children were a real credit to the school and to themselves. They spoke confidently about how they use digital technology in school and answered lots of questions about their use of VR cameras, Marty the Robot, Google Suite, Moki Bands, Crumble controllers and Google Passport.
Thank you again to everybody at Bowes, staff and children, who have contributed to our technology curriculum over ther years.
