The Education Digital Standards will assist schools to understand, manage and implement their digital environment, by themselves or with their IT support partner. The Standards also provide guidance on how schools should future-proof their digital environment to meet the needs of a more digitally focused school curriculum.
The Standards are envisaged as a best practice solution for schools to meet their digital needs. However, it is accepted that schools are operating on limited resources and have to plan for attaining the Standards over time.
Your local authority can provide you with advice and guidance on how you can meet these Standards.
All infrastructure work undertaken to meet the Standards should be carefully considered and planned; procured in compliance with national procurement regulations and installed by professional organisations.
