Your school is encouraged to register for the Digital Schools Awards Programme Northern Ireland.

The Digital Schools Awards Northern Ireland is a national awards programme which promotes, recognises and encourages best practice use of digital technology in primary schools.

For more information and to register your school go to and join the fast growing community of Digital Schools across Northern Ireland, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.

Some of the benefits of becoming a digital school:
• The programme has presented many schools with an achievable recognised award for their deployment of digital technologies;
• There is an emerging community of practice among schools who are sharing innovations and best practice;
• Encourages whole-school and policy-led approaches to the use of digital technologies in teaching and learning;
• Schools, in undertaking the self-review framework are engaging in activities that are promoted by National, European and International organisations and are therefore more global in their approach;
• Early evaluations suggest that schools welcome the self-review process and the recognition that being awarded a Digital School brings.

The programme is supported by HP, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Microsoft and Intel in Northern Ireland.
