COMPUTING

At Leverton Academy, we know that preparing children for the future is essential. We are currently investing heavily in technology to support the learning in our classrooms. Most recently, we have purchased 30 Laptops, 20 iPads for our children to use. We use the iPads as powerful learning tools to bring content and excitement into lessons. Our children are becoming increasingly confident at manipulating images, creating video content, researching, programming and coding.

We have invested into our classrooms too, new GIGANTIC touch screen smart boards have been rolled out in all our classrooms. 

We know that technology can be powerful for accessing content, however not all information on the internet is appropriate for all children - we have a strict filtering system in place, managed by our outsourced technology company (OrchestrateIT) - to ensure that only the information we need is delivered to the children. We also educate our children in the importance of keeping safe online, cyberbullying and internet misuse. 

 

We regularly run e-safety sessions for parents to help familiarise everyone with keeping safe online, and explaining to parents what we install in all of our chidren. There are some amazing ways technology can be used to inspire, engage and develop children's learning.

Laptops & Tablets

We have recently purchased and refreshed our laptop collection. We now have enough laptops for every child to use in their class, no more sharing. 

Games & Tech Toys

From walkie-talkies to bee-bots, Raspberry Pis to kindles, we use technology throughout our curriculum, as well as teaching specific skills and functions for digital leaders of tomorrow.

Class Dojo

We use Class Dojo to help encourage positive behaviour, share learning from school and send to parents and provide a platform for parents to communicate with teachers easily.
