At Southwell we believe being a 21st century learner means being a confident, connected, actively involved lifelong learner.

We use digital platforms as a medium to promote

  • Connections
  • Communication
  • Collaboration
  • Creation
  • Inquiry
  • Presentation
  • Digital citizenship

Teachers are part of a professional learning community where we constantly develop ways in which e-learning can be incorporated into everyday learning and teaching.

We have an IT department to support our staff that includes an e-Learning Leader who works alongside teachers and facilitators in each syndicate.

We also have onsite technicians to maintain the network and devices.

When using online sites or apps please consider the privacy of our students. What is the purpose of using this site/app? Have you checked the restricted list? Who has access to the online material-video/photos/comments? Can this be controlled? If you have any concerns, please have a discussion with a member of the SLT.

The time spent using devices increases as a student moves through the school.

Year 0-1 10%
Year 2-4 20%
