The school is well equipped to provide the children with the access they require to a range of technologies in this increasingly important area of the curriculum.
Information Communication Technology is used throughout the curriculum. It is taught to whole classes in the school Computing area where their skills can flourish under direct teaching.
We use Purple Mash as the core of the curriculum and have enhanced it where we feel we can add more to the content.
Importance is placed on creating confidence in the use of computing skills for use in all areas of the curriculum. This is done not only in word processing, but in general handling of information be it in simple story form or more sophisticated desk-top publishing, graphing, creating a piece of music or collecting data from our various items of sensory equipment. Children have the opportunity to use Green Screen technology, digital camera, and a variety of multimedia to enhance their presentation of work. This area is becoming increasingly important in opening up the world to the children at the touch of a button.
Work linked to E-Safety takes place regularly in school and children and staff examine both the positive and some of the potentially dangerous aspects of the internet to ensure our pupils can use technology safely.
