What did they need?

iPad has helped the school motivate staff and improve communication across school, resulting in staff using iPad features and apps to hit key development goals in phonics and self-assessment. Aruba has given the school increased capacity and coverage, meaning they can get the most out of their devices. Aruba also use the school’s existing cabling and switches, so has helped them save on the cost of the rollout.
"Jigsaw24 did some whole school training with us before we got iPad, and our regional education manager has done quite a few drop-in sessions. If ever there’s a problem we drop him a line and he nips in at lunchtime, and that’s gone down well with staff"
