Elementary Technology were chosen to provide various audio visual systems to be installed into 2 new buildings as part of a re-location project of the Primary and Secondary departments of The Bridge School, a special school in the London Borough of Islington. This decision was based on competitive pricing plus the required level of project management.
With an order value of over £250k, 30 rooms received new equipment including height adjustable plasma and SMART flat panel displays in the classrooms, projectors & audio systems in the professional training rooms and 3 large screens & projector systems in the halls.
The project was delivered on time & on-budget, providing specialized learning solutions for children with SLD, PMLD & ASD. Telephone & on-site support was provided and Elementary Technology showed a good ability to work alongside a larger building project.
Compared to our previous paper based system, the new touchscreen sign-in system which integrates with our office is vastly easier to manage, it saves us a lot of time, is more reliable and also brings safeguarding benefits to our school.
In a school with 540 pupils and 60 staff, it’s essential we know at any time exactly who is on site – and this system gives us that information at the click of a button or a tap of the excellent iPad application.
We bought 12 Vidifox Visualisers from Elementary Technology Limited… the whole experience of working with the company was first class. From when I first contacted the company to ask them if they could show some of their products, to when they set them up in each classroom and demonstrated how they could be used.
The visualisers are excellent. The images displayed on the whiteboards are very clear and the product is simple to use. The children love how instantly their way work can be displayed for the rest of the class to see. I have no hesitation in recommending Elementary Technology to other schools.
We were delighted to see the level of detail in your Classroom Healthcheck – it was extremely professional, well presented and exactly what we need to inform our ICT development plan! It's a must for any school, and it helped us realise that we needed to address the performance of our classroom display equipment on a school-wide basis.
The installation went without a hitch – your in-house team were outstanding and ensured we were absolutely happy with every element of the process.

During the project managed installation Daniel came to site, liaised with all members of staff, and helped in person with the delivery of the screens. This hands on approach has continued with the excellent after sales support visits we’ve received. He has been class to class making sure everything is working, and the first of the staff training sessions was carried out within 24 hours of the work being completed
I am writing to say a massive thank you after the efficient installation of the 11 Epson ultra-short throw projectors which you recently installed to replace our old Sanyo ceiling mounted projectors, they are brilliant!
We were recommended to speak to you as you had worked with so many local schools and you audited our equipment free of charge and gave us a full report with recommendations.
Our projectors were in a pretty bad condition and you advised the best way forward with the funding we had available.
I would like to thank Elementary Technology Limited… for the use of the Optivote system at our recent Youth Manifesto launch event. The support beforehand in terms of delivery and set up made a potentially daunting venture seem easy. The use of the system in the event provided an entertaining and useful element and we now have some outstanding intelligence related to the views of young people in the borough. To have 130 units operating seamlessly and getting instant access on a large screen to the results was really effective.
I write to say how much of a valuable investment the purchasing of the interactive screens has been and just how they have enhanced the children's learning experiences.
Unlike projectors and smart boards, there is no loss of picture quality from shadows, or bulbs that need replacing. The high quality image allows practitioners to use video clips, websites and to display the children's work using the Vidifox visualizers
The Classroom Healthcheck is a superb service which provided an outstanding overview of how our classroom display equipment is affecting our teaching and learning – something which even our ICT Support wouldn’t have the expertise to create.
