At Willowbrook Mead, we aim for our children to confidently and independently use and apply information technology skills to support and extend their learning. We develop a culture where the use of ICT (information, communication and technology) becomes second nature to our pupils, thus ensuring they are ready and able to embrace the technological advances of the future.
ICT is central to the curriculum and is integrated into a range of subjects. To aid this, the school is well resourced with Interactive Whiteboards in all teaching rooms, which allows us to create visually stimulating lessons and greater opportunities for interactive learning. In addition the school has class sets of laptops and iPads.
Our children are taught how to access information, evaluate its suitability, store it, share it with others and tailor it to meet their own needs.
