Information and Communication Technology

At Goodwyn we aim to equip our children with the skills they need to use technology to become independent learners, and to have a sound knowledge of popular software applications in readiness for the transition to secondary education. Our teaching style is both active and practical, with children using ICT in most subjects on a daily basis, including our interactive whiteboards in the classrooms and netbooks in Key Stage Two. The entire school is networked thus enabling ready access to the internet and online resources.

ICTThe Internet is available on every computer and children in Key Stage Two are allowed to do class based research safely, in the knowledge that our Safety Net software will prevent them from accessing inappropriate sites. They are also given Internet Safety lessons at the beginning of each year. Children are, however, required to have parental permission to use the Internet.

A specially planned, structured and manageable scheme of work allows ICT to be taught in a way that enhances and encourages both individual and collaborative learning. With the nursery as a starting point, the emphasis is on getting children familiar with the technology and using simple applications

Children in Key Stage Two are taught how to use multi media technology such as animation, video cameras and microphones. Key Stage Two teachers are developing a paperless homework system, where children are able to access homework tasks via the school website and email their homework straight to their teachers. By the time they are ready to leave the primary environment and enter the secondary stage of their education pupils will have attained a high level of ICT capability.
