Layton Primary School continues to go from strength to strength - the school is a contender in the 2014 Education Innovation Awards.
The awards are looking for schools using education in an innovative way, something the school was keen to demonstrate after a good Ofsted rating in 2013 and a letter of praise straight from the Government.
The school’s entry captured their blogging journey that commenced in September 2012, as reported in Study Zone and Junior Gazette.
One particular class really embraced blogging, with the children taking real ownership of the content posted and supporting other children and staff across the school to use technology.
By the time Class 6J were leaving school in July, their blog had had over 21,000 hits and there was a 300 per cent increase in Level Five writing.
The winner will be announced at the Education Innovation Conference & Exhibition (EICE), a national two-day event taking place at Manchester Central on February 27 and 28.
