Samuel Ryder Academy named Apple Distinguished School

Posted on 23/10/2019

Apple distinguished school

 

 

Samuel Ryder Academy has recently been designated Apple Distinguished School. This follows re-designation as Apple Regional Training Centre and is in recognition of the school's unique implementation of Apple technology in both its primary and secondary classrooms. Apple Distinguished Schools are recognised as centres of innovation, leadership and educational excellence that use Apple technology to inspire creativity, collaboration and critical thinking. They showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching and the school environment and have documented  results of academic accomplishment. The use of iPads, in addition to other Apple technology is fully embedded throughout all phases of the school. In their primary phase, class sets of iPads are expertly employed to enhance all areas of the curriculum and the exciting use of Spheros (robotic balls) and other robotics makes for a highly engaging computing curriculum from a young age. In the secondary phase, the one to one device programme creates an equality in the access all students have to this excellent learning tool. Personalised approaches to learning, instantaneous feedback from teachers or peers and support with independent learning, both in and out of school, are extremely well facilitated through access to these devices for all. 

As an Apple Distinguished School and Regional Training Centre, Samuel Ryder Academy will host and run a number of opportunities for continued professional development across the county, as well as offering the opportunities for professionals to visit the school to see the technology in action. As a school, Samuel Ryder also recognise their responsibility in raising awareness of e-safety and therefore offer support and education both for students and for parents in this area.
