ICT

All schools within The Pegasus Academy Trust have wireless technology allowing computers to be used whenever they are needed in the classroom.

We aim to enable children to gain the confidence and capability to use Information Technology in everyday life; to become 'computer literate'.

From Sept 2012 the programmes of study for ICT in primary schools have been disapplied which has allowed us to use computers as an aid to learning across the curriculum and reduce the number of discrete 'taught' lessons in ICT.  In truth the national curriculum could never keep up with the pace of change in technology and so we have changed our curriculum to include many more links to English, science and maths as well as including opportunities to do some basic programming.

Our schools are now using 1000mbps dedicated high speed broadband connections to the internet allowing children top quickly access video and high quality graphics.  In addition we encourage children to edit various sections of our website and to use 'Fronter' - the Trust's Managed Learning Environment (MLE) which allows both adults and children to access more of the school's resources online.

You can see the complete long term planning for all year groups in the Trust here.  Some of the programs we use are 'freeware' allowing parents and carers to download versions at home that can be used to consolidate or enhance skills.  Just follow the hyperlinks in the document.

At the Pegasus Academy Trust we also strive to ensure that our pupils understand the importance of e-safety.  If you would like to know more about keeping your child safe online, the Thinkuknow website has useful information for both parents and children.  For advice, help or to report possible internet abuse navigate to the CEOP Safety Centre.
