The judges quoted: SIS were recognised for their varied video conferencing programme, which demonstrated significant cost savings. Scargill Infant School has embraced video conferencing and been able to enhance learning across a variety of year groups and subjects. Video conferencing has offered the school scope to enhance learning in more subjects when trips out would have been limited by budget. They have saved over £3000 in coach hire, administration and teacher costs with just 5 visits to UK museums alone! That equates to 648 of mileage saved and 26 hours of travel time.

Well done Scragill Infant School we are all very proud of your National accomplishment.
This award is a "hat-trick" for the London Borough of Havering, who have now won three National awards for the use of VC in their schools in three consecutive years. Well done Havering School Improvement Services.
