Digital technology is the future. No matter what career our students pursue they will need to perform, succeed and lead with digital confidence and expertise. Our curriculum and approach to teaching and learning ensures our students develop into powerful digital citizens on both a national and a global scale.
This does not mean we don’t use paper and pens, or that students are plugged into a device throughout the day. What it does mean is that, at Leigh Academy Blackheath, students not only learn to use technology, but do so in order to learn. We provide every child with a device to use in school and at home; and every physical classroom has a virtual classroom, allowing students to engage with both pre and post-lesson learning material.
E-safety and digital responsibility play a large role in our digital learning, making sure students recognise their responsibility in keeping themselves and others safe online.
