At Dimple Well we believe that Computing is an essential part of the children’s education as it is an increasing part of our everyday lives. Each class have a set of iPads that are used to improve children’s computing skills, in addition to adding extra interest and enjoyment to their learning. This creates freedom to take learning anywhere in the school – even outside! Children also have access to wider technology such as interactive whiteboards, laptops, visualisers, bee bots and much more.

“I like when we take the iPads outside. We made a Pic Collage of flowers” Upper Foundation pupil.
“The Lego workshop was amazing. We made our own fairground rides and made them move using Bluetooth” Year 1 pupil.
“We use the iPad in Maths. I love playing Hit the Button the best because I can do it really fast and I get better every time” Year 2 pupil.

 

E-Safety

Technology is a brilliant tool for learning and communicating. However, it is important children understand how to use it safely and how to deal with any problems in an ever-growing digital world. Our curriculum embeds the teaching of e-safety throughout all year groups and encourages children and parents to be safe online. Termly newsletters will be sent home with tips and updates about how to stay safe online. If you have any tips or queries regarding e-safety, please let us know.
