Does your LA have an Educaiton IT Dept?
Pretty self explanatory! Does your authority have an education IT dept? Our LA have got rid of theirs during a recent reorganisation and this concerns me! Now any requests go to the corporate dept who have limited understanding of how schools work, it also incurs a charge, even for just meeting to discuss a requirement/idea (cheeky *****ds!) I also feel that with VLEs, etc, this should be led centrally, especially with the 14-19 learning pathways coming in and pupils moving schools.
Before I rasie this at a higher level locally, I thought I'd ask here what happens in other areas of the UK!
