This practical manual is the second part of a 2-volume set that together makes up a detailed 2-year training programme for primary ICT and E-learning co-ordinators. The second book takes coordinators through the second year of the programme but may also be used as a starting point by more experienced staff. The structured training programme, timed over three terms, includes o a complete review of E-Safety procedures in the light of the Every Child Matters agenda. o Developing a funding model in order to plan for ICT developments, together with a broader ICT action planning review to embed a revised E learning vision through a series of long-term sustainable actions o Reviewing the curriculum in order to examine how the E Learning community will adapt its core practices to facilitate new technology. o the evolving role of school websites as they assume interactivity and examine the place of E Learning within the extended schools agenda. o Reviewing the use of ICT as a tool for management systems and discussing how ICT can be used to support different groups of children. o examining self-evaluation strategies linked to the school's SEF, the Ofsted Section 5 Framework and Every Child Matters. The books have a companion website, which will offer downloadable versions of the photocopiable sheets from the book, as well as links to other sources of help and advice.

- Begin a review of the school's long-term financial strategy and funding model for ICT in order to plan for developments with regard to total cost of ownership.
