PUPILS from an East Renfrewshire primary school are celebrating after receiving a prestigious Digital School Award. 

Schoolchildren from St Thomas’ Primary School in Neilston were assessed during a visit earlier this summer. 

During the assessment visit, Pupil Digital Leaders confidently showcased the work that had been developed and embedded across the school over the last two years. 

The assessor then visited classes to observe how digital technologies permeate all aspects of the curriculum.
