Faringdon Infant School actively encourages children to explore and use technology in a safe environment both at school and at home. We provide opportunities for children to access technology throughout the school and provide pupils with access to resources such as Purple Mash and Active Learn so that children can continue to develop their skills and understanding at home.
As a school we keenly promote E-Safety through our curriculum to enable children to understand the risks when using technology and to provide them with ideas and strategies to help them use technology safely and respectfully.
Faringdon Infant School has an E-Learning Code of Conduct which every child and parent is asked to sign when they become a member of the school community.
