At Mayflower, we recognise that technology is evolving all the time. We therefore strive to exploit the opportunities that technology brings to engage children as well as ensuring they are well equipped for a digital future.
Computing is taught across the school through weekly sessions. Pupils also have the opportunity to apply the skills they have learnt across the curriculum. We have 120 iPads and a set of Chromebooks in the school supporting children's learning in all subjects using a range of apps and online learning portals. Via these, we provide all pupils across the school with key computing skills such as coding and presentation. We aim to inspire children to dive into an imaginary world using this technology as a vehicle.
We involve the wider community by giving children real life experiences in the computing world through our partnership with organisations such as BP and Morgan Stanley. Each year children have the opportunity to take part in robotic coding clubs and workshops.
We take internet safety very seriously at the school. Through assemblies and lessons we ensure that all children know their rights and responsibilities and teach them how to stay safe when using the internet. We also run regular workshops for parents and provide a wide range of materials for them to access.
Mayflower is proud to provide a firm foundation for all children in computing and offer the most engaging learning experiences we can using new technologies.
