Redburn School wins national award for excellence in digital teaching and learning

Cumbernauld school gains national 'Digital School' status


Redburn School is now among 43 Scottish primary schools from across Scotland that are recognised for excellence in digital teaching and learning and the first school in the Additional Support Needs sector.

The Digital Schools Award recognises the dedication and innovation shown by Redburn School in areas of leadership and vision, digital technology for learning and teaching, school culture, professional development and resources and infrastructure. 

Nicola Lavery, Head Teacher Redburn School, said "Digital technology has supported our pupils to develop skills in communication, social skills and independence. There has been such a positive impact on motivation and engagement across the curriculum."

A total of 22 primary schools from cities and towns across Scotland were recognised for their work on digital technology in the classroom at a special presentation ceremony on Wednesday 6 September.

Recognised by Education Scotland and supported by HP, Microsoft and Intel, the award is designed to encourage and recognise schools that make the best use of digital technology in the classroom.

Shirley-Anne Somerville, Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science, said: "This programme positively impacts upon pupils' motivation to learn as well as recognising achievement by teachers and schools in advancing the integration of technology in the classroom. I commend all the primary schools receiving their digital schools award on their great achievement."
