ICT Ambassadors


We aim to lead the way with 'new' technology in and around the school, and who better to do this than the children of St Ives. We have ICT Ambassadors from Year 6 to guide the school ICT department on how to stay ahead with ICT tools, hardware, software and the important area of e-safety.



The internet is always changing and safety is something that we consider very important at St Ives First School. Use this link to find out more information and access easy to use guides on internet safety.
