In an ever-increasing technological world it is essential that we empower children with the skills to be:
Respectful, Responsible and Purposeful Users of Technology
Within the Infant School, technology is used as a tool to aid learning with an emphasis on developing digital citizenship, information technology skills and computational thinking. With a wide variety of resources available, including interactive boards, iPads, Chromebooks and PCs, children learn transferable skills in a safe, supported and filtered environment.
Technology is integrated throughout all curriculum areas and is used by staff and children to document and record individual learning journeys through apps such as the ILD (Interactive Learning Diary) and Seesaw.
In the Early Years there is a strong emphasis on developing a balanced use of technology with children being encouraged to monitor their time spent in front of screens and how to make good choices. As children progress into Key Stage 1, they learn about the responsibility of being ‘connected’ and how to be safe and principled users of technology, whilst sharing their creations and exploring their curiosity through the effective use of digital tools.
