Jo Payne

Vale School

The Award for Outstanding Use of Technology, supported by Google

Worthing, West Sussex

Jo has had such a positive impact across the school through her commitment and enthusiasm in using technology to enhance the education of the children at Vale School.

Not only have her class, and the Year Group she leads, benefited from her excellent use of IT to support learning across the curriculum, the whole school has grown in their confidence using technology to improve outcomes for children.

Jo is always willing to give up her own time to help other staff as they introduce IT into their classes and she is an inspiration to the children in how best to use technology safely and wisely to help them learn.
