Computing and new technologies are an important and valuable part of the Dame Ellen curriculum. All classes have access to iPads, in class PCs, interactive whiteboards and touch screen tables (in reception and year 1).
The school have trained 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 toys, film making and recordable microphones.
