Earlier this week, we hosted a day for our Apple provider, Jigsaw24, on which 15 or more teachers and leaders form schools across the Midlands cames to have a close examination of how we apply digital technology so successfully.
There were many positives! The ones which really stood out were… the variety of integration in different year groups, the positive energy throughout school & engagement of pupils, outstanding behaviour (even when having 3 large groups of adults in & out of the classrooms!!) and hearing staff share their rationales for the lesson/digital.
Additionally, the children’s understanding of ‘why this, why now’ was impressive, their confidence & pride when clearly articulating not just digital but their learning overall really shone. The class ambassadors were fab too!
A few children also did a presentation at the end of the day on their outcomes from KS2 onwards and they did a fantastic job!
There was a lot to be very, very proud of as we continue to set the pace, right on the cutting edge, on digital learning.
Some feedback so far from the visitors…
May I express the appreciation of Jigsaw24 to your team of staff and extraordinary pupils, for hosting our visitors from the two trusts today.
The enthusiasm for learning at your school was so evident, and I heard much appreciation of the openness and clarity of thought from your staff and of course the confidence and expertise of your pupils. Please give particular thanks to all your digital leaders who shone throughout the visit.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for yesterday. I found this exceptionally useful and really enjoyed all the conversations with the pupils who showed such enthusiasm for their learning. They were a real credit to your school!
