IT integration at Reigate St Mary’s….
One aspect of Reigate St Mary’s that sets us apart from most of our competitors is the integration of IT. We have long recognised the fact that IT is interwoven into every aspect of life these days and therefore for the children to see it in this context rather than an additional ‘lesson’ prepares them for the real world. From Years 4 to 6 the children have their own iPad provided by the school, which effectively becomes a portable resource for research and a digital pencil case for all sorts of different applications. The link below might make for interesting reading as some extensive research has come to show that younger children really do benefit from the use of such devices and it is nice to have what we have observed and believe backed up by official research.
