Parents and carers may choose to supplement our school’s educational offer with support from online companies and in some cases individual tutors. If you chose to do so we must emphasise the importance of securing online support from a reputable organisation/individual who can provide evidence that they are safe and can be trusted to have access to children. Support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online includes:

The children have access to two dedicated computer suites, including laptops for use in the suite or classroom. The school also provides Netbooks and ipads giving children access to new technologies with the use of learning applications such as Mathletics as the name suggests is an application on Maths and Lexia designed to improve reading.
In addition to this, the children have the use of further computers in the library and each classroom has an interactive whiteboard and laptop.
To make sure all our computers and software are up and running at all times, we have the availability of an ICT technician giving support to the school.
