Technology

We have an ambitious ‘Digital Transformation Strategy’ that places teaching and learning at its core, using modern technology to increase student engagement, reduce administrative workload for staff and ensure that every child has the opportunity to experience the benefits.

We have invested significantly to ensure our students have access to the latest technology so that they are well-equipped to succeed in the modern, digital workplace:

  • High-speed internet access throughout the whole school
  • Interactive ‘smart’ boards in each classroom
  • Dedicated Ipad for each classroom teacher
  • Digital cameras (still and video) for observations and performances / recording
  • Two dedicated ICT suites for teaching and for students’ use
  • Two large laptop banks (60+); one for upper KS2 and one for lower KS2 (Junior school)
  • A large bank of the modern ipads (30+) for KS1 (infant school)

 

“Never let a good crisis go to waste”

Winston Churchill

 

We took the opportunity during the COVID crisis, to accelerate our Digital Transformation Strategy, quickly becoming a Google Classroom school with each pupil having a own unique login to an online classroom where they can access learning materials, submit homework, communicate with their peers and teachers, as well as for remote learning through Google Meet video-conferencing.

Through our Google Classroom portal, which can be accessed on any device, students have access to the latest word processing, creative and publishing software – completely free.

We are a proud member of the DfE’s Edtech Demonstrator Programme and we benefit from the support of our partner schools, the Cheam Common Junior Academy in the LEO Academy Trust and Britannia Village Primary School in Newham.
