ICT News

GCSE WORK
Well done to last year's Year 10. The summer GCSE results for ICT were  again outstanding. Particularly well done to Chantel Spencer-Bowdage with the top mark, and also to Sophie Davey, Hannah Royle, Laura Mason and Jennifer Spring who were very close behind.
The current year 10 have just finished their first coursework project, and are on target to achieve similar sets of grades. Well done to them as well.

YEAR 7
The new Y7 groups have made an excellent start in their ICT work, largely as a result of the effort put in by staff in our feeder primary schools. A big thank-you is due to our local primary staff who have worked so hard to incorporate more computer-based work into an already over-crowded curriculum in recent years.  Their efforts do not go unnoticed.

INTERNET SAFETY AT HOME
We continue to encourage parents to keep a close eye on the online activities of their children. Advice from child-protection agencies dealing with online issues is to have internet access only on computers in public rooms in a house. Online access in a child's bedroom is not advised without rigorous security measures in place to prevent contact with stalkers.

TESCO COMPUTER VOUCHERS
Thank you to all parents, friends and pupils who collected vouchers during the spring. We exchanged our vouchers for a range of equipment that will be used by pupils in subject classrooms. This includes a new high-quality colour-printer in Art, and some wireless items for general use.
No doubt Tesco will be running the scheme again in 2009. Please continue to collect the vouchers; we always make good use of them.
