We are keen to develop the use of assistive technologies for our students. Students have access to specialist software such as Read and Write screen reading software and Dragon NaturallySpeaking dictation software or dictation apps.

Touch-typing is timetabled for all students within skills lessons or ICT lessons. A range of hardware is available for the students to use including digital cameras and video cameras with tripods.

We are in the process of rolling out the provision of tablet computers to all students. Pupils will be using the tablets:

  • To assist with learning within the classroom eg completing coursework, homework & research for school projects
  • To use dictation and assisted technologies
  • To fully access the curriculum
  • To help with their daily organisation through use of diary, notes etc.
