WADE Deacon High School is one of six schools in the country to scoop an award for getting parents involved with computers.
Schools Minister Jim Knight presented staff and pupils with a certificate and cheque for £1,000, at an awards ceremony at Lancaster House, London.
Pupils Michael Chisnall and Sophie Fitzpatrick, e-learning consultant Brian Fisher, and assistant headteacher Christine Marsland, represented the school at the National Confederation of Parent Teacher Associations awards.
Brian Fisher said: “Research has shown that home access to the technology and specifically the internet has a positive impact on children’s learning.
“However, this can be undermined significantly where a lack of parental ICT skills affects online learning at home or means that there is no home access to the internet.
“The Parents’ Road to Success project will see pupils creating podcast videos to share key computer skills with parents.”
