Rolls Crescent Primary School
To design and install a new AV and ICT infrastructure to further develop an “outstanding school” (Offsted 2007), with specific reference to eco-friendly guidelines.
Rolls Crescent Primary School boasts a rainwater harvest system, solar energy, cedar tiles, windows that open and close automatically depending upon the temperature and even a wind turbine. All linked into the existing network infrastructure.
The new and improved school, which is sited on the playing fields of the former school, has been carefully designed to meet the educational needs of the 21st century and also with the input of pupils who attended a variety of workshops to share their ideas.
The design includes light airy classrooms, natural lighting and state of the art ICT facilities. The grounds have been extensively developed and include a multi use games area, outdoor classrooms and a multi skills pitch.
Such has been the development in the ICT services that following the opening of the school, it achieved a Leading Aspect Award awarded for raising attainment through a whole school commitment to quality teaching and resources through the use of ICT.
Digitech supplied and installed a communications infrastructure throughout the school and complimented this with a Ruckus wireless solution and interactive 78” & 95” Active + 2 whiteboard systems from Promethean. In addition we installed and commissioned a wind turbine facility for generating low cost electricity as well as providing added curricular weather activities.
Headteacher, Wendy Zaidi says:
“Staff, pupils, parents and carers are delighted with our new building. We have demonstrated that inner city schools can be outstanding and our new building is enabling us to raise our standards and attainment even further.”
