The school is well stocked with computers and each class is connected to the Internet. The skills of ICT are taught in accordance with National guidelines and ICT is used in all subjects. We have an ICT suite of 30 workstations for students' use with broadband Internet connection, which is used by the whole school.
Each class is equipped with an interactive whiteboard, speakers, microphone, electronic visualiser and digital camera. These are embedded as part of the children's learning and children love using our resources for information and communication technology.
We are excited and looking forward to the changes to the curriculum proposed by the government for September. The new 'Computing' curriculum allows us to embed the use of technology and application of skills across the broader curriculum and help further the technological life skills that are essential for the future.
At Thorpe Lea Primary School we are passionate about educating children about eSafety. Teachers embed internet safety into their curriculums and parents are encouraged to attend eSafety workshops. For more ideas on how to keep your child safe online visit our eSafety page.
