INSET Day, School Closed to Students, Friday 1st December
Year 11 Information Evening: 6:00-7:30pm, Wednesday 6th December
At The Portsmouth Academy we are committed to creating lifelong learners, and in support of this our one:one device promise to your child is “Making Learning Last”, when they fire-up that device your child is choosing a blended approach to education where their device supports their learning as they progress.
We are proud of our cognitive education, we put an understanding of how the brain learns at the heart of all that we do. We know that the brain, and in particular memory, can make mistakes; our one:one device will reinforce your child’s ability to develop their memory.
Our one:one device scheme is an investment in the future of education, and this brand-new initiative is the start of a new and exciting era for The Portsmouth Academy.
Investing in this scheme is future-proofing your child for careers that may not even exist yet, it is ensuring that they leave secondary education with the right level of digital skills, and it is preparing and empowering them with the tools, and the knowledge, to meet the modern needs of further education and employers.
Our one:one devices are state-of-the-art, come pre-installed with the Microsoft Office suite, internet security and are updated regularly to keep your child safe online. They can be used as a laptop or tablet with a stylus pen for drawing and writing notes, to use in class and at home. A device they can call their own, to do their work on, store and refer back to when revising and generally get a feel for, and understanding of, using digital platforms to learn and grow.
We will be using software on our one:one devices to encourage instant feedback between students, parents and teachers. Taking the classic handwritten ‘note’ further, that feedback can be an audio or video message.
We know, without a doubt that investing in our one:one devices will have a transformative effect on your child’s personal and academic success.
These amazing HP360 touchscreen laptops are small and perfectly fit into most school bags.
