We are a one form entry primary school situated in the heart of Dalton-in-Furness, Cumbria. We are passionate about giving our children, who come from a wide range of backgrounds, the best start in life and then guiding them as they develop a life-long love of learning. As a result, all of our children emerge as confident and creative learners.
At Dalton St Mary’s, we believe the role of a technology-rich environment is crucial in facilitating a multitude of opportunities for children to discover their capacity to learn, to create and to collaborate.
Having the latest technology at their fingertips and the freedom to choose how they articulate their learning means that children can, and do, demonstrate their potential for aspirational futures in this endlessly evolving digital world.
Our Journey With Educational Technology
We have been a 1:1 iPad school for several years and, since becoming an Apple Regional Training Centre and an Apple Distinguished School, have been supporting schools in their endeavours to embrace new technologies. There are a great many options out there for schools to choose from and a range of ways in which technology can be used. We are excited to engage with schools who wish to find out about Microsoft, Google or Apple as platforms to deliver online learning both in school or at home.
We are happy to have conversations, deliver training and support schools however we can with the same end goal of every EdTech Demonstrator School; that every school is confident in their provision for their children and staff giving them the opportunities to use the latest technology regardless of where they currently are.
