Our digital curriculum will be underpinned by the principles of the IB MYP programme and seamlessly embedded in all aspects of Academy life through use of our 1:1 device scheme, creating LEIGH Learners who are highly competent in their use of technology and digitally literate.
At Leigh Academy Rainham, technology will not replace traditional teaching methodologies but instead will augment, and elevate the way that new content and skills are delivered, providing a rich and diverse learning experience for our students. Technology will both bring the world into the classroom and transport students to any aspect of the globe they wish to explore; students of Leigh Academy Rainham will leave us as global citizens already feeling they have travelled the world. It is the vision of both the Academy, and Leigh Academies Trust, to possess a Digital Levels score of 4 by 2025 with technology not being used for technology’s sake but being implemented in lessons through a meticulously planned approach to ensure its use is highly pertinent, varied and creative.
Technology use will enhance the learning and progress students make as they journey through the curriculum, supplementing their learning with development of their digital skills and digital literacy.
‘Technology alone is not enough. It’s technology married with the liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields the results that makes our hearts sing.’ – Steve Jobs
