Britannia Community Primary School
The Solution
Britannia Community Primary School is a Rossendale
school aiming to achieve a welcoming and safe
environment, whilst creating a learning environment
that is both challenging and supportive.
The Brief
The school were looking to replace seven interactive white boards in
2012, and the Head Teacher, Mike Hull wanted to look at newer
technologies including touch screens. The school approached Universal
AV for proposals and demonstrations on the latest innovative
interactive classroom technologies. The solution also had to be suitable
to work in the Reception Class environment as that would be the first
phase of the installation.

Universal AV arranged a demonstration of the
CTouch screen with the
Head and the Reception class teacher. Andrew
Cooper, Rossendale Branch Manager at Universal
AV believed that the CTouch would be perfect,
however, wanted to assess the schools true
requirements. The demonstration indicated that
although the screen and functionality was perfect
to meet with their needs, the lack of wall space in
the class meant it would need to be mounted on
a height adjustable trolley.

Mike Hull and the teacher were pleased with the
product and confirmed that the CTouch was the
route they wanted to go down. Universal AV quoted
to provide the solution. This was accepted and
installation was planned for early September 2012.
Installation
The installation was completed as scheduled and
was followed up four days later with a further
demonstration to the entire teaching staff, which
confirmed all would like a CTouch in their classroom.
However due to flooding in the school monies had to
be allocated elsewhere but thanks to some additional
funding a second screen was wall mounted in the ICT
Suite at the beginning of December.
Phase 2
The installation of the screens has received such
a positive reaction from teachers that the school
contacted Universal AV at the beginning of 2013
to fit a further two screens with a plan to purchase
the remaining screens in the new financial year.
Mr Hull gave the following comment on the CTouch,
“It is very rare that you see a group of teachers so
genuinely excited about a piece of equipment that
helps with their teaching. It is one of the best items
I have purchased within a School.”
