Digital Schools of Distinction will have an ICT strategy, and a positive attitude towards ICT.

Schools will integrate ICT across the curriculum.
Staff will demonstrate a clear understanding of how ICT can be used to improve learning.

Schools will demonstrate an awareness that ICT affects the quality of learning and teaching, pupil attitudes and behaviour, and the school community.

Schools will demonstrate a commitment to ongoing professional development in ICT, informing teachers of courses in professional development, as well as offering general support.

Schools will have appropriate ICT resources, including hardware, software and infrastructure to support particular learning environments, and reflect plans for ICT development as outlined in the school’s policy.
