The BSF programme provides the city with a once in a lifetime opportunity to not only improve school buildings, but to make sure schools in Leicester are at the forefront in the use of Information Communications Technology (ICT) for learning. Leicester aspires to be an online, connected learning city, and the BSF Programme is equipping our schools with world class technologies - and enabling us to support staff in developing the skills and confidence to match.
We work closely with our BSF ICT partner to implement high quality solutions across all secondary schools in the city.
Digital Literacy - the capability to live, learn, work and thrive in modern society – is essential for all our young people, and the BSF Programme will help ensure that every learner can take advantage of the opportunities that effective and innovative use of technology affords. Learners in Leicester will be confident, thoughtful and positive in their use of technology.
ICT will support efficient and effective school management processes, supporting integrated information, which can be securely and appropriately shared with parents, carers and partner agencies to support young people achieve their potential.

ICT Thematic Priorities

Each Thematic Priority is illustrated with bullet points providing indicative associated action areas. The Priorities are designed to frame measures of year on year activity and improvement at individual school and estate wide level, to review set priorities for annual action planning and to focus resource effectively.
