Leading Computing in a Digital Age
Holy Trinity was the first school in Hillingdon to introduce Apple Technology to learning and teaching. This technology has inspired creativity, and sustained engagement over the years:
“Christian values at the heart of accelerating teaching and learning through pioneering technology.”
We live in an ever changing digital age where we encounter and engage with a multitude of technology to aid our lives. Digital technologies have also become integral to the lives of children and young people, both within schools and outside school. These technologies are powerful tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone. These technologies can stimulate discussion, promote creativity and stimulate awareness of context to promote effective learning. Therefore at Holy Trinity we believe that our IT provision should endeavour to closely reflect current technology and be incorporated across the curriculum, adding value to learning in every subject. It enables pupils to be independent, enthusiastic and empowered learners. We are further committed to building community relationships through digital platforms allowing them to play a significant role in the life of the school and deepen learning experiences. Thereby pupils are recognised for their digital skills, developed and applied during their time at Holy Trinity to prepare them for their future life and digital advancements.
We are committed to safeguard all pupils in our care. Our pupils have an entitlement to safe internet access at all times and Holy Trinity achieves this by ensuring:
- that the school’s technical infrastructure is secure and is not open to misuse or malicious attack
- that the school meets required e-safety technical requirements
- that users may only access the networks and devices through a properly enforced password protection policy
- the filtering policy is applied and updated on a regular basis in line with legislation and government guidance.
