I.T. skills lessons are taught across the school and classes also access I.T. for cross-curricular work. Our computer suite, which consists of 32 networked PC’s, enables the whole class to work independently.
I.T. is integrated into our schemes of work; computers support pupils’ learning throughout and pupils regularly use the classroom interactive whiteboards. Our computer suite is used to deliver regular, skills based ICT lessons as well as directed research and learning. They learn how to become competent and responsible users of our Internet facilities, as well as using a range of information communication programmes. In addition, each classroom has its own on-line internet linked PC.
With invaluable support from our PTA, we have invested in interactive technology by purchasing digital projectors and interactive whiteboards for all classrooms. In addition we now have digital cameras, dictaphones and camcorders to enrich teaching and learning. With their help we have purchased a set of laptops which can be moved from room to room to give more children the opportunity for independent and personalised learning.
As well as teaching I.T. skills we deliver specific lessons on E-Safety across the school and encourage parents to support us in this by keeping vigilant at home.
