West Rainton Primary School is a fun and happy place to work, play, learn and grow. They care for each other like a big extended family, and they are proud of what their school represents and every individual within it.

They will work hard to help your child achieve high standards of work and behaviour as a valued member of their happy school community.

West Rainton Primary School is situated in the former mining village of West Rainton on the outskirts of Durham. It opened in 1927 and has been serving the community of West Rainton and Leamside ever since. They pride themselves on being a happy and welcoming school community where lifelong learning is fostered through creativity and enjoyment.

Paramount Group installed eight, 65-inch CTouch touch-screen monitors into the school’s classrooms. All of the work which included cabling and the fixing of specially created stands which can be raised and lowered to accommodate the different class sizes, was done within a couple of days during the school holidays.

“This latest equipment is fully interactive and gives teachers the opportunity to offer pupils a whole new experience in the classroom,” said Paramount Group MD Ian Brown.

“Teachers can link their iPad to the screen and move around the classroom updating the screen as they go. They can run programmes from their laptops or link into the school’s Wi-Fi. It will hopefully make any teacher’s job easier whilst offering the opportunity to use an array of technology which, until the interactive touch-screens were installed, could not be accessed.”

Paramount Group works with some of the UK’s biggest and well-known companies including Drax Power Station, Quorn Foods and Tombola. Here in the North East they work with Durham Cathedral, Beamish Museum and South Tyneside College. However, they also provide schools like West Rainton Primary with a solution that helps both pupils and teaching staff.

“Teachers love the screens and pupils immediately relate to them. They’re ideal for our latest computer curriculum”, said the head teacher at West Rainton Primary School, Alison McDonough.

“Pupils have hi-tech equipment at home and feel comfortable using the screens. It allows fully interactive teaching because the pupils can interact with each other and with the teacher.”

This is arguably one of the most exciting recent developments in education, opening-up a whole new world of potential for teachers and their pupils. It is an easy to install, cost-effective way to improve teaching at all levels and increase the educational experience for pupils.
