Technology for learning

At Cheam Common Infants' Academy, their prime focus is to nurture a lifelong love of learning from the very beginning, providing a curriculum that is carefully crafted to ignite curiosity and foster growth in their youngest learners.

Each child is valued as a unique individual, and the schools dedicated staff closely monitor their progress, ensuring that every step in their educational journey is thoughtfully planned and tailored to their needs.

In 2020, they embarked on an exciting digital transformation initiative in partnership with LEO Academy Trust. As part of this initiative, every pupil at Cheam Common Infants' Academy received their own Chromebook, revolutionizing their approach to learning. Recognizing the importance of personalized learning in the early years, the school strives to create an inclusive environment where every child can thrive at their own pace.

Through its integrated digital skills curriculum, they empower young learners to navigate technology safely and responsibly, laying a strong foundation for their future educational success.

"Technology has definitely helped a lot of children in terms of accessing learning on a day-to-day. We still need them to learn the basics of forming letters and all of those standard skills, but when it comes to the wider curriculum and various elements that we have found difficult before because of their age, the technology has actually helped and has made it more accessible for them."

Since 2020, Texthelp tools, Read&Write and OrbitNote, have been seamlessly integrated across every device at Cheam Common Infants' Academy. This proactive approach ensures that scaffolding is readily available to support the diverse needs of every child.

"We're absolutely committed to nurturing children, to give them the well-rounded skills that they need, not just to to exist, but to thrive and to flourish in the future. The tools provided by Texthelp are really transformational here, ultimately transforming children's lives."
