My colleague Scott Jacques who is National Strategies Advisor for ICT sent me this bit of great news...

"Hi Chris, I thought that you'd be delighted to hear the fantastic news that one of our schools, Robin Hood Primary, has won the prestigious ICT Excellence Awards 2008 - Best whole-school for the Yorkshire and the Humber region. This nationwide event is run by BECTA and is hotly contested. The award recognises the wonderful, ICT rich learning experience that the children of Robin Hood receive, thanks to the excellent ICT leadership and vision of Mark Wilson and his team - Sam Bailey (Deputy Headteacher), Alison Darroch (ICT Leader) and James Watson (Primary ICT Support). The award means that they have been recognised as the best whole school use of ICT across the region, primary or secondary - a wonderful achievement. They are also, as far as I am aware the first winner of a BECTA ICT Excellence Award from Leeds. Mark and his team received the award at the ceremony in Sheffield last night. Further details can be found at:
Regards Scott."

I have visited Robin Hood Primary School recently and seen the magic that Mark, Sam, Alison and James are releasing and it is brilliant. As I have said before the future's here and it is at Robin Hood Primary School.
