The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Computing

This is an integral part of the whole curriculum, as well as children developing explicit IT skills.

Our aim is to facilitate children to become digitally literate and be able to express their ideas through IT, thus becoming active participants in a digital world.

We are fortunate to have an IT suite, laptops and a few ipads for children to develop their skills. The children are taught online safety skills as an essential element of the curriculum.

Key Stage two children also can use the IT suite at lunchtimes to follow their own interests, under the watchful eye of a teacher.
