At Thanet Primary we encourage and promote the safe use of technology to equip our children to navigate the rapidly changing digital world. We aim to teach online safety by promoting a consistent approach to keeping children safe online and giving the children a voice. This preparation starts in Early Years and is built upon each year. It is our intention to teach our children the skills and knowledge they will need to succeed in the 21st century, to stay safe, enjoy and embrace technology.
Across the school, computing is a significant part of everyone’s daily life and children should be at the forefront of new technology, with a thirst for learning what is out there. Through weekly lessons computing within Thanet aims to provide a wealth of learning opportunities and transferrable skills both explicitly within the computing lessons and across other curriculum subjects. All children have access to range a multi-platforms including: Chromebooks, Windows and Apple.
