E-Learning at Holy Family Catholic School
Holy Family places a very high level of importance on E-Learning and teaching. The head teacher, teachers, governors, teaching assistants and pupils promote a ‘whole school’ philosophy. We have extensive and heavily used E-Learning resources, which are regularly upgraded to ensure we have the latest technology available for children and staff.
We are in the very fortunate position of have a dedicated E-Learning Suite with 37 computers to enable ‘whole class’ teaching and learning. It is important that all pupils and staff gain the appropriate E-Learning skills, knowledge and understanding in order to use technology to its fill potential. E-Learning is an ever-evolving subject and Holy Family School endeavours to keep ahead of the game by introducing new hardware and software as well as working with commercial partners.
The aim of our work is:
