The school is equipped with wireless hubs in each room and trolleys of laptops and tablets which the children use at their desks. At Bonner Mile End, we also have three ICT suites where machines are connected directly to the network.
We have digital cameras, iPads, microphones, recorders, NXT EVO Mindstorms robots and a wide range of exciting software. Each classroom also has a smartboard and projector for use in most lessons. Our children use ICT equipment in many subjects. In Computing lessons, they learn about e-safety, coding, email and communications, control technology, data handling, word processing, touchtyping, publishing, computer aided design, research and investigation, networks, programming and much more.
Our Computing Clubs help to stretch and enthuse children who are keen to extend their skills. We currently run a Robot Club and a Coding Club.
You can find an overview of our Computing curriculum here.
In today’s world, it is more important than ever that children know how to keep themselves safe. We make e-safety a high priority and children are taught the basics of online safety in every year group and in regular special assemblies.
However, there is only so much schools can do. It is incredibly important that parents take the time to talk to their children and set rules within their homes. We strongly suggest that you put a filter in place at home to prevent your children accessing adult sites, and that you monitor your child’s computer access. Talk to your child today!
We teach children the SMART rules.
Safer Internet Day 2016 will be on 9th February.
There will be assemblies for the children and information will be sent to parents too.
