ROYDON Primary Academy has refurbished a former break out space into a 20 computer strong IT room. The academy used to outsource its IT needs to BMAT STEM, but now students can do the IT curriculum in house.
Head teacher Michael Clark said: “It is wonderful to have a tool Roydon has never had before. We have gone from nothing to everything we need. The world they are growing into is all about computing, so these are very important lessons for them. It is amazing. The children are really happy”
Every week, pupils will spend an hour in the computing suite learning the subject. The room, formerly an under-used break-out space is also being used to support other subjects, such as timetables testing, history and geography research, publishing and coding club.
