The ICT Mark is an important accreditation as it validates the work we have been doing over many years using new technologies. Our aim has been to make technology pervade all areas of the school and integrate seamlessly so it is as such a natural part of school life. We want technology to be used to transform rather than simply replace old learning tools and practices; to take learning to the next level of thought and activity.

There is a multiplicity of activity in the use of technology inside and outside the classroom, which includes students being proficient in sound and lighting for productions to broadcasting from our radio station to the use of our 3-D printer to learning within the classroom, in order that our students are ready for the world outside of school.

With all the work that takes place above, it is vitally important that e-safety is a major feature at Wildern. Every term students are given the most up to date information regarding how to remain safe on-line, as well as the focus in assemblies, tutor time digging deeper sessions and National E-safety day; it is alive, kept relevant and a visible part of everyday life of the school. This focus is not just for our students but also our staff, governors and our current and future parents with training taking place at our WINK events and at our primary schools. We are therefore very proud to have been awarded the 360 Degree e-safety mark which supports the work that we do.
