At Easington Primary Academy, we believe the use of information and communication technology is an integral part of the National Curriculum, a key skill for everyday life and vital for a successful future for our children. Laptops, tablets and programmable robots are a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. In an evolving world where technology is at the heart, we aim to develop enthusiasm in computational thinking and confidence in using the latest technologies for a range of purposes.
We are very lucky to be able to provide each and every child within the school with their own Chromebook for use during the school day which develops their skills as well as their knowledge in the wider curriculum.
At Easington, it is paramount that children are confident users of technology, including the internet, whilst exploring it safely. As a school, we have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our children which includes online safety.
