“The most beneficial part of the training was being able to actually do the things rather than being told how to. Also the apps demonstrated were applicable to all subjects.”
Chris’s supportive and friendly manner enables colleagues to confidently work alongside him in order that they develop their own practice. He has motivated and inspired staff in the ways that they can effectively use ICT to support pupils learning and has challenged them to think more creatively about their teaching.
We are now developing our ICT provision in all aspects of the curriculum including linking Music and Technology and also Art.
Pupils have gained skills that exceed national curriculum expectations and confidently use the apps and programmes they have learned to develop their practice further.
We have been grateful for all the support that we have received from Chris to ensure that ICT is fully embedded within our curriculum.

“How refreshing to have someone who really understands what a powerful impact technology can have on teaching and learning”
Not only does Chris understand ‘good’ teaching and learning but he has the curriculum knowledge and technical know how to make it happen.
Chris has supported Stretton in developing our use of technology to engage children in exciting learning opportunities. Working with our IT lead, staff and children, he has inspired us all!

Making a promotional film for Courthouse Green Primary School. Been visiting each class and filming the learning that is taking place. Pupils are filming a commentary to be the voice over. All really exciting. Can’t wait to get editing in Final Cur Pro X
