ICT Mark Accreditation

Congratulations to Grosvenor on the renewal of its prestigious ICT Mark Award, allocated following an extensive external assessment of its ICT provision, carried out at the beginning of September. 

The award is assessed by Naace, the professional association for those concerned with advancing education through the appropriate use of information and communications technology, in conjunction with the Department for Education. Allocation of the ICT Mark is made when the school has satisfied a visiting assessor that its plans and provisions have met or exceeded the national standard.

Upon conferment the accreditation is valid for three years and was last awarded to Grosvenor in 2010.  It recognises the school’s success in developing the strategic use of ICT in both administration and across the curriculum, with its latest allocation serving as proof that Grosvenor continues to lie at the forefront of modern technology.

Commenting on the bestowal of the ICT Mark, Naace CEO Mark Chambers stated; "Grosvenor thoroughly deserves its ICT Mark accreditation. It has clearly demonstrated how important it is to take a whole-school approach to using ICT in schools.  We look forward to working with Grosvenor to demonstrate how ICT can have a substantial impact on learner outcomes in the future.”

Principal Mr Robin McLoughlin also added; “On behalf of Grosvenor, I am delighted to be awarded the ICT Mark. It recognises our positive approach to ICT 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 for our children to be equipped for the modern world.”

In addition Mr Sammy Taggart, the School’s ICT coordinator who led its latest ICT Mark bid, commented; “I am really pleased at the presentation of this award, which provides recognition of the excellent ICT work that is taking place within Grosvenor.  Applying for the award really brought into focus the ICT work that we are doing each and every day.  All the children and staff deserve great credit for this achievement.”

Well done to everybody at Grosvenor who contributed to its achievement of this award and we look forward to the continued development of ICT use within the School over the coming three years.
