1:1 DEvice Project

Introduction to the Project

Embracing Digital Inclusivity: We recognise the importance of digital skills in the modern world. With the digital sector forming a significant part of the UK economy, we understand the necessity of preparing our pupils for a future where digital proficiency is paramount. Timbercroft Primary School and Maritime Academy Trust have been working in collaboration with Leo Academy Trust. Our 1:1 Device Project, initiated in October 2021, is a testament to our commitment to bridging the digital divide and fostering an environment where technology enhances learning and personal development.

Project Aims

Empowering Our Pupils: The project's core objectives are to:

  • Ensure that every Maritime child benefits from free access to their own Chromebook starting in Year 3 and this device stays with them until they leave us in Year 6 
  • Enhance learning opportunities through peer interaction
  • Provide more problem-solving tasks
  • Develop skills in connectivity, collaboration, and innovative learning methods
  • Foster creativity and critical thinking
  • Encourage self-learning and independent exploration

Community Collaboration

Building a Learning Community: A key aim is to use technology as a bridge between pupils, parents, and carers, creating a supportive community that extends learning beyond the classroom. This aligns with Maritime Academy Trust’s strategic goal of continuous learning, regardless of the school day.

Progress and Future Plans

Milestones and Expansion:

  • Current Status: As of now, every child in KS2 at Timbercroft has their own Chromebook, marking a significant step in our digital journey.  Every child in Key stage 1 and EYFS has access to a Chromebook in their classrooms, setting the stage for home use in Key Stage 2 while ensuring their online safety through effective monitoring and safeguarding software.
  • Future Goals: Timbercroft Primary School remains dedicated to ensuring that every child in Key Stage 2 has their own device, recognising its critical role in supporting their educational journey and bridging the digital divide. The provision of individual devices is paramount to the academic progress of each child, particularly for those disadvantaged pupils who may not have access to such technology at home.

As part of our CPD Curriculum Strategy this will be disseminated to staff over a period that will sustain and embed the project in the future, building on improvements and feedback from staff, pupils and parents.

A Step Towards a Technologically Fluent Future

Timbercroft School is dedicated to preparing our pupils for a world where digital literacy is not just an advantage but a necessity. Through the 1:1 Device Project, we are setting the foundation for a future-ready generation.  We also ensure the safety of our pupils through robust safeguarding protocols and cutting-edge software.
