Computing at Buckingham Park

At Buckingham Park Primary School, we recognise the importance of pupils developing a range of skills in today's technological world.

We have two computer trollies with 30 networked laptops in each, Ipads and tablets in use in many of the classrooms, desktop PCs all with Internet access and a broad range of programmes. These meet the range of needs of our pupils. We are frequently reviewing and updating our programme list.

We are currently in the process of implementing the computing programme of study for 2014. See the links below if you want to find out more information.

Interactive whiteboards and visualisers are used across the school in the majority of classrooms. These enhance teaching and learning, enabling us to teach creatively and use a wider range of resources.

All teaching staff are equipped with laptops which are used in the classroom and elsewhere via wireless technology. They are used with interactive whiteboards, for Internet access, planning and record keeping and as an essential teaching tool both in and out of the classroom.

We also use a range of other technologies such as visualisers, digital still and video cameras, headphones and microphones, CD and DVD players and overhead projectors.
