Oh my gosh, more to consider and what's even more scarey is that I don't understand all the jargon!

Thanks for your ideas David.

No disrespect, but if you havent got much experience then you need someone who knows about vanilla and who can help you quite a lot in the first instance. I have been a techie for some time and only recently have I felt confident enough to venture into vanilla territory.
Some of the guys here forget (or never knew!) how hard things are if you have never done anything like it before.
I honestly believe that some sort of managed system would be best - if you are as inexperienced as you suggest, then it is too much to expect you to cope with everything mentioned so far.
I don't rate RM very much and from what I have read, CC4 is a bit of a problem but if your techie is good and seems to think that he can cope, I would probably go with that.
As for the rest - a good IT suite is still needed - it is all very well integrating IT into the curriculum but there are times when a whole class need to get on to the machines.
The next thing is to make sure the laptops work with the wireless and speak to the tech about upgrading the wireless network if poss.
Finally, each teacher should have either a laptop or a classroom computer, along with an interactive whiteboard and projector.
I work in Primary and Middle, and spent 7 years in a First school so I have a good idea of what is needed in the earlier years at school.
PM me if you need any help with anything

You could make small hinged tables for them attached to the walls. Fold them away when not in use. A standard filing cabinet will hold laptops quite nicely, too.
