ICT is very important to our learning at ABS. It helps us to learn and it is fun at the same time. Have a look at the websites we have suggested to help you with your learning. Also, remember to log on to the MLE to check the blogs to see what each class have been doing during the week! 

E-safety plays an integral role when teaching and using ICT at ABS.  We deem e-safety as limiting the risks that children and young people face when using the internet, mobile phones, i-pads, and online games etc.  To ensure that this is embedded and understood by everyone, we hold e-safety parent sessions and information is given in the newsletter.  It is important for parents and carers to promote and reinforce the need for their child to use technology sensibly and appropriately at home. We constantly address e-safety awareness with the pupils; this is done through assemblies, discussions, anti-bullying week and through a range of engaging and interactive computer programs.  The staff are fully aware of the e-safety procedures and protocol in the school and we aim to teach ICT in an engaging and effective manner, whilst still teaching it in a safe way.  For more information about e-safety for your child, please visit: http://www.childnet.com/parents-and-carers
