Synergy Multi-Academy Trust comprises ten Norfolk schools serving children between the ages of 2 and 18. Our schools work collaboratively together to raise standards and provide education of the highest possible standard, offering the best of opportunities for pupils. The Trust was initially established in 2015. We believe that all of our schools have strengths and areas to develop, and that all can improve through sharing expertise and wisdom. The Trust understands that there will be excellent practice in each school, and that every school will be able to contribute to the development of the Trust as a whole.
We recognise the importance of ICT and Computing as a lifelong learning tool at Litcham School and recognition of the value of ICT in all learning is key to our approach.
ICT/Computing is taught in a variety of ways; where necessary, specific ICT skills are taught in discrete ICT lessons, however, ICT teaching also takes place using a cross-curricular approach. This allows children to transfer ICT skills and use technology for a real purpose. We are users of Google and Google Classroom. We are users of the Norfolk NSIX domain to allow pupils to communicate safely at home and at school. Pupils can blog regularly, to allow writing to be shared, at home and at school with parents and carers and with each other. We use a range of hardware that include tablets, laptops and chromebooks.
We are developing our coding skills by working closely with the secondary phase and other schools in the cluster.
