Children at De Havilland access a broad range of computing resources and learning opportunities.
We therefore see computing as embedded into teaching across the school. Computing skills are taught through all subject areas and children are given the opportunity to apply their skills in a broad range of purposeful ‘real life’ contexts.
We are proud of our evolving curriculum offer and currently have a range of 16 Dell laptops and 66 Chromebooks. We are also excited to announce, we are expanding our use of Google for Education.
