Manor Leas Junior Academy
Computing is interwoven throughout the curriculum at Manor Leas Junior Academy. We are fortunate to have over 120 iPads in school as well as a bank of 30 laptops and 15 desktop PCs so that children can access the curriculum using a variety of different software and technology. Our aim is to give children the tools they need to make safe choices when using the internet and also the basic skills required to be digitally literate.
We offer a variety of Online Learning available to pupils both in and out of school time and encourage pupils to explore technology in a safe way. It is important to us that Computing skills are developed in context, for example Year 6 pupils using Microsoft Excel to create pie charts and diagrams when studying World War 2 and the numbers of Jews sent to different concentration camps.
