Computing

We have an up-to-date Computing Policy in line with government guidelines.  We have a bank of laptops and chromebooks that are used in the classroom and offer the latest in multi-media, connected via a wireless network. We also have interactive screens in all classes. This allows whole class teaching and an increased use of computers in the curriculum. All classes have an tablet which is used by both staff and teachers.
 
These are the essential skills for computing that we aim to develop whilst at Grade Ruan School.
