Britannia Community Primary School is a Rossendale school aiming to achieve a welcoming and safe environment, whilst creating a learning environment that is both challenging and supportive.

The Solution

Universal AV arranged a demonstration of the CTouch screen with the Head and the Reception class teacher. Andrew Cooper, Rossendale Branch Manager at Universal AV believed that the CTouch would be perfect, however, wanted to assess the schools true requirements. The demonstration indicated that although the screen and functionality was perfect to meet with their needs, the lack of wall space in the class meant it would need to be mounted on a height adjustable trolley.

The Brief

The school were looking to replace seven interactive white boards in 2012, and the Head Teacher, Mike Hull wanted to look at newer technologies including touch screens. The school approached Universal AV for proposals and demonstrations on the latest innovative interactive classroom technologies. The solution also had to be suitable to work in the Reception Class environment as that would be the first phase of the installation.

Mike Hull and the teacher were pleased with the product and confirmed that the CTouch was the route they wanted to go down. Universal AV quoted to provide the solution. This was accepted and installation was planned for early September 2012.

Installation

The installation was completed as scheduled and was followed up four days later with a further demonstration to the entire teaching staff, which confirmed all would like a CTouch in their classroom. However due to flooding in the school monies had to be allocated elsewhere but thanksbritannia primary school to some additional funding a second screen was wall mounted in the ICT Suite at the beginning of December.

Phase 2

The installation of the screens has received such a positive reaction from teachers that the school contacted Universal AV at the beginning of 2013 to fit a further two screens with a plan to purchase the remaining screens in the new financial year. Mr Hull gave the following comment on the CTouch, "It is very rare that you see a group of teachers so genuinely excited about a piece of equipment that helps with their teaching. It is one of the best items I have purchased within a School."
