With regards to you wireless requirements, I would definately go for a managed solution in order to meet your schools needs.
IMHO Netgear offer a solution that is both cost-effective and is supremeley reliable. We have installed it into more than a dozen primary schools over the last 18mths and we have not had any problems at all. The WFS709TP Controller manages up to 16 AP's, (with 8 POE ports) which is more than enough for most Primary schools' requirements, and is based on Aruba technology. You can go for either b/g or a/b/g AP's.
The controller dynamically manages channel allocation, security, load balancing, redundancy, and a true seamless roaming capability, amongst other things, which means that if it has been designed and setup properly you should end up with a realistic alternative to wired infrastructure.
I would strongly recommend that, if you decide to look at this option, you contact a company that has been certified by Netgear (ditto for other vendors) as a Wireless Controller Installer, because it is quite a specialist subject area.
If you need any further help on this subject feel free to e-mail me on email@example.com
Hope that helps
