CHILDREN at an infants school in Portsmouth have won an award for using computers to enhance their work.

Following an extensive external assessment Copnor Infants was given the ICT Mark in recognition of its success in using information, communication and technology across the curriculum.

Headteacher Sue Hurley said: ‘I’m delighted with the award. It recognises our approach to ICT and the benefits it is bringing to our children.

‘We believe ICT can be used in every aspect of learning and that it is essential our children are equipped for the modern world.’

ICT subject leader Rhian Evans added: ‘This award shows recognition of the excellent ICT work that is taking place at our school. All the children and staff deserve credit for this achievement.’

Bernadette Brooks, general manager of Naace which runs the ICT Mark supported by the Department for Education, said: ‘Copnor Infants thoroughly deserves the accolade of an ICT Mark accreditation.’
