Parkside Primary School hold classroom ICT keys to the future
Midlands based Kamazoy, specialists in reliable computing solutions, has helped Parkside Primary School in Staffordshire to deliver savings on both teacher curriculum time and money spent on existing ICT capabilities and procedures.
Supporting a range of business service packages and support platforms from their Birmingham base to a growing number of companies across the Midlands region, Kamazoy through the use of their unique ICTRoadMap™, worked with the school to identify and improve their existing ICT structure. They also provided support and helped extend ICT teacher training and provided the tools to aide student ICT need from within the classroom.
Parkside Primary Headteacher, Annette Jones, stated: “By the end of the year we estimate each one of our teachers will save approximately 90 hours per year with just one of Kamazoy’s suggestions alone.
“Combining the school’s improvement plan aspirations and targets to Kamazoy’s ideas and suggested projects will also allow us to increase attainment across the curriculum and increase results, but more importantly it will ensure our students are better prepared for their secondary schools and their digital lives ahead.”
Kamazoy detailed how to develop and expand systems and also provided advice on how to deliver maximum future proofing, presenting the school with a three-year plan which also included easily implemented systems and additional tips and actions they could undertake.
“Parkside Primary School has a very friendly atmosphere and the pupils are incredibly enthusiastic.” said Kamazoy’s founder, Daniel Dainty. “The school’s teachers have done a fantastic job of ensuring the students are extremely clued-up when it comes to e-safety and the Internet; enlightening to both students and teachers now that so many ICT doors are now unlocked.
“We look forward to working with them again on their next challenge, and learning what plans they have once all the boxes on the ICTRoadMap have been ticked. I’m sure that day won’t be too far away.”
