Welcome to the home of Oatlands Junior School’s recently elected Digital Leaders.
We’re looking forward to meeting every fortnight to discuss all things Computing-related and to practise our ICT skills. It will be our job to support our teachers and peers in Computing lessons, so we’ll be busy this year making sure that we’re IT experts.
Each week, we’ll also be awarding certificates for outstanding behaviour in the ICT Suite. We’ll be on the look-out for other children who set an example for the rest of their class, listen carefully to instructions and leave the ICT Suite clean and tidy.
