ICT is integrated into every subject and the school benefits from a bank of 60 mobile devices which are used in class. The devices are the latest Windows 10 touch screen tablets. This allows every child to have access to a mobile device. The school boasts a whole school wireless network enabling the mobile devices to be used anywhere within the school.
Every classroom has an Interactive Board which are mostly either Smarboards or interactive televisions. The Year 4, 5 and 6 classes have the latest iboards (interactive televisions) installed which have proved very popular and over time more classes will be upgraded. The school also benefits from state of the art stage sound and light systems, an interactive floor and software to allow the children to create stop frame animations.
The school has a high speed Internet connection allowing lessons to access resources on the Internet to augment the children’s learning. Internet Safety is very important and not only is our internet connection filtered but typing any inappropriate words on any computer within the school will cause the event to be logged and investigated by staff.
