Computing and new technologies are an important and valuable part of the Dame Ellen curriculum. All classes have access to iPads, in class PCs and interactive whiteboards. Classes also have access to a specialized Computing Room complete with Apple Macs and a green screen.
This year, the school will be training a group of children to be 'Digital Leaders'. Their role is to act as instructors for members of staff and their peers to support with the use of iPads.
Our computing curriculum allows the children to access technology in a variety of forms including programmable robots, switch operated toys, film making, green screens and recordable microphones.
