Being able to make effective use of digital devices and software (such as tablets, email, etc) is known as being digitally literate.  Such digital literacy is becoming a key and essential skill in of all parts of modern life such as education, the workplace and our own leisure time.


At Turnbull High School, we have always looked to make effective use of digital technologies to enhance learning and teaching.  However, in light of the recent COVID pandemic we feel now is an especially relevant time to ensure that pupils, parents and staff are all clear about how they can be most effectively employed. 

Therefore, following consultation with pupils, parents and staff about the best use of digital technologies and the digital literacy skills that we would expect all members of the Turnbull High School community to have we have come up with our DIGITAL LITERACY POLICY (which can be found in the resources section below). 

A key area of this policy is the home learning element.  A summary of how Turnbull’s home learning operates via SHOW MY HOMEWORK (SMHW) for day to day homework (or during a lock down) can be seen below.

More information about how these systems work can be found in the DIGITAL LEARNING GUIDE (which can be found in the resources section of this web page).
