In Calside Primary, we aim to provide all our learners with the skills to access and confidently use modern Information and Communications Technology in school and in the wider world. Digital literacy is a core skill for lifelong learning and for work, and we follow a strategy to develop flexible digital citizens: DHS-Digital-Literacy-Strategy
We follow the Council Digital-Citizenship-Pupil-Safe-and-Responsible-Use-of-Technology-Guidelines in order to keep all users protected as well as the school network. We also follow the DGC-Social-Media-Policy and Guidance-on-the-Use-of-Social-Networking-Sites
We use a range of hardware including mainframe computers, netbooks, Ipads, Microbits and Arduino to ensure that children are familiar with different technology. Pupils use the Internet for many aspects of learning. In order to allow this, parents must complete an Internet Permission form. This is sent in the maildrop when it is required to update.
