About us

We are Woodchurch Road Primary School in Birkenhead, Merseyside.

What do we want?

We need to replace and update our computers and would like to invest in some chromebooks and micro-bits.

Who is this for?

Children across all year bands will have access to age-appropriate equipment. 

Why do we want it?

As the years have gone by and technology has advanced, the role of ICT in education has become a major player in the delivery of teaching and learning and has transformed the education system as we once knew it. It’s clear that the use of technology is now key for everyone hoping to join the future job markets. It has also been said many times that the children in primary school now, are going to be part of a workforce tackling jobs which have not yet been imagined. 

We would like to support our children be better equipped in the technology-rich future, through exposure to a range of types of technology. A technology-rich school environment will help them to realise the range of their possibilities, develop skills and creativity.
