Why school radio?

Having a school radio station puts your school right at the heart of the creative curriculum. As well as fulfilling Scotland’s “Curriculum For Excellence” requirements and covering England’s National Curriculum learning objectives creatively, broadcasting is a powerful and stimulating platform that brings so much to pupils – and teachers alike. It’ll give them lifelong skills, tap into their creativity, help with team building, educate, inform and engage.

A proven way to engage pupils

Academic research continues to highlight that the synergy of music and technology presents potential new opportunities for educators, demonstrating quite clearly that it is a highly engaging and fun way to help children learn literacy and develop as individuals. Award-winning Jody Collins, who wrote the ITC curriculum, was one of the early adopters of School Life Broadcasting and fully endorses our school radio and school TV service too.

Put simply, the benefits and applications are limited only by imagination, and let’s face it – children have plenty of that! Please have a closer look at our services or get in touch and we’ll be happy to have a chat and help.
