St. Mary's has a recently refurbished Computer/Resource Centre. This new facility now links our computer suite and our reference library to create a new resource area. Mr Preece heads our IT and Computer Science subject and all class teachers assist pupils in both Key Stages on learning computer skills.
Pupils undertake research work, document production, produce slide shows, presentations and artwork from the workstations. They participate in Maths and Spelling challenges globally and are able to communicate with our Partnership Schools through the internet. Pupils are able to operate mini I-Pads - we are very grateful to our school's PTA for contributing to the cost of 36 mini I-Pads and to the upgrade of our computer suite hard-drives.
Internet Safety training is of paramount importance and the school undertakes regular safety training sessions with the pupils. Find out more about our Internet Safety Rules and School's Internet Safety Policy.
