Jenny Hinton
  • The Award for Digital Innovator of the Year
  • Parkdale Primary School
  • Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

Jenny has been leading the digital revolution at Parkdale school for four years.  Given permission by her Headteacher to innovate, Jenny took him at his word.  She has expertly led whole school development from virtually zero to near one-to-one iPad provision across the school.  This has involved upskilling, teachers, pupils and parents.

Her contribution has gone wider too, as she has become a go-to support colleague for other leaders within her school’s Trust.  She has provided practical, concrete examples to accompany the theory that forms the foundation of all the work.  All this was achieved during the pandemic and into the last year.  Jenny didn’t want to see a crisis go to waste, and made the most of the opportunities that different way of learning presented.  Colleagues report that what she has achieved has been quite remarkable.
