ICT in the Primary School
 
In the Infants, ICT is incorporated into our regular teaching programmes. Specialist computer skills are taught in small groups to allow individualised attention. The Infants have a small suite of personal computer workstations suitable for small group working.

In Year 3, the personal notebook programme is introduced. Year 3 students use their personal notebook in class during the week but take it home at the weekend. A specialist ICT teacher gradually familiarises children with the range of programmes and operations they will be using in regular classes. From Year 4, children use their personal notebook in regular lessons, where appropriate. Our aim is to teach children to make appropriate use of technology. Therefore, traditional skills such as spelling, handwriting and mental maths still form an essential part of the Primary school curriculum. The school has a protective firewall and internet-use policy, which allows safe, supervised use of the internet during classroom time.
