Abstract

During 2014, an in-depth study explored how improvements in Pheasey Park Farm Primary School had rapidly been made in teaching and learning, where digital technologies had played important roles. Using a case study approach, evidence was gathered across the width of stakeholders (head teacher, teachers, learners, parents, and external consultant). In terms of a starting context, an Ofsted inspection in October 2012 placed this school in a ‘Requires Improvement’ category. The inspection indicated that teaching quality varied too much and was considered ‘dusty’, achievement in English and mathematics was not high, and lessons were often too dominated by the teacher.
