At Spinfield we love computing! We are lucky enough to have two full class sets of laptops and a class set of iPads. Every classroom has an interactive white board and an apple TV. The iPads are funded by our amazing Parents Association on a three year lease.
Purple Mash is the basis for our computing curriculum and online learning platform. Every child in school has their own log on so they can use Purple Mash both at school and at home.
We use G Suite for Education from Google and all children from year 1 upwards have a Google Classroom account. This can be used for homework, remote learning or school closure. It can also be used in class. Our Early Years team use Tapestry to record and share children’s work with parents.
At Spinfield we take online safety very seriously, we start every term with online safety lessons. Please see the tips and information below. We regularly hold e safety assemblies for children and workshops for parents.
All children are expected to read and comply with Spinfield Computing Code of Conduct.
