During ICT in classes we use a number of websites and programmes we have downloaded.  Many children have expressed an interest in accessing these websites and programmes so we have included a quick link for your convenience. All the downloadable programmes have proved to be valuable learning tools and have to date run trouble free on our school computers.  All the children are advised during their ICT lessons that permission should be granted by a parent or guardian when downloading anything to a computer at home.
