Over the weekend the number of schools subscribing to Digimap for Schools broke the 2000 barrier! This jump in subscriptions is a result of a group of primary schools in West Lancashire taking out a subscription. Interestingly it’s not Geography that is the driver behind this group sign up, rather it’s for school sport and in particular, orienteering, where interest has come about. School sport for this particular group of primary schools in West Lancashire is delivered by the West Lancashire School Sport Partnership.  Their Partnership Development Manager, Mark Forster, says ‘I manage PE and School Sport across a cluster of primary schools and plan to deliver a programme of Orienteering to the schools. One of the barriers to this is the absence of a high quality orienteering map for each school. Digimap for Schools would not only support us to develop orienteering maps but I have been impressed by the other potential cross curricular opportunities it can provide schools’. Mark has offered to undertake a case study of the impact the service has on these particular primary schools in West Lancashire.  We are thrilled to have these new primaries join us and look forward to working with Mark and sharing the case study with you.
