Welcome to ICT at Threemilestone School.
We always have had a great vision for ICT and believe our children should be prepared for the 21st century. We use a variety of hardware and software to achieve this which include classroom computers , laptops a computer suite, an iMac and a net book for each Key Stage 2 pupil .We follow an exciting curriculum in the teaching of ICT skills and use ICT right across the curriculum.
For more information about our vision and policies see the school prospectus and the relevant ICT policies ~ links below.
Video games and Films
Unsure whether a game, film or website is suitable for your children? The Common Sense Media site has reviews and advice for parents about what may or may not be suitable for your child.
All our staff and pupils sign an acceptable users agreement . The staff also sign a social networking safe user agreement, a mobile phone policy and a digital images policy.
We teach e-safety from Reception through to Year 6 through a programmed scheme of work. Our Internet is filtered by ICT4 and we will be implementing eSchools VLE after Christmas for the children to have a safe and secure on line resource to interact with each other and staff 'anywhere, anytime'.
We take internet safety very seriously at Threemilestone and children are taught safe methods of using the internet and what to do if things go wrong. Below are some links to some websites with information for parents and carers about e-safety and how to help keep children safe in the online world. Please remember though, there is no substitute for carefully monitored internet usage and open and frank discussion (at an apropriate level for your child) about their use of the internet.
