Computing

"Man is still the most extraordinary computer of all."  John F. Kennedy


Computers and technology are a huge part of our lives, so it essential that children learn to use the computer as a tool.

As soon as children arrive at Belhaven they are taken through courses to show them how to word process, use a spreadsheet, and browse the internet safely. As they progress through the school, they are introduced to desktop publishing, website design and the use of photo-manipulation software.

Each child is given an account through which they can safely and securely access the Internet and their school e-mails. These accounts are monitored, though not in an intrusive manner.

The school has a suite of 24 computers and each classroom has access to the network. Classrooms are equipped with Interactive Whiteboards – giving another exciting and innovative platform for the use of ICT in the classroom.
