Computing and Technology
Computing and technology are a part of everyday life. PCs, laptops, tablets, games consoles and smartphones are commonplace in the daily lives of Sacred Heart pupils. It is really important that the children access this technology safely and effectively.
Children at Sacred Heart will have daily access to a host of different technologies that will engage, motivate and develop skills for their futures.
If you have any questions about what the children are doing in school, speak first of all to your children and ask them to give you a tour of our school website. If you have any further questions, please speak your child's class teacher in the first instance.
You can find information about E-Safety, software and websites further down on this page.
E - Safety
Sacred Heart RC Primary School works with staff, pupils and parents / carers to create a school community which values the use of new technologies in enhancing learning, encourages responsible use of ICT, and follows agreed policies to minimise potential e-safety risks.
We discuss, monitor and review our e-safety policy on a regular basis, linking it with other relevant policies such as Safeguarding, Pupil Behaviour and Anti-Bullying Policies. We support staff in the use of ICT as an essential tool for enhancing learning and in the embedding of e-safety across the whole school curriculum.
We ensure that pupils are aware of the potential e-safety risks associated with the use of ICT and mobile technologies, that pupils feel able and safe to report incidents and abide by the school’s e-safety policy.
We provide opportunities for parents/carers to receive e-safety education and information, to enable them to support their children in developing good e-safety behaviour.
There is also a really useful link on our website called Thinkuknow in the Children’s Zone.
