We equip pupils with the knowledge and skills appropriate to an increasingly complex technological age. We recognise the value of ICT as a subject in its own right and its power as a cross-curricular educational resource. We aim for children to use ICT equipment and software purposefully and confidently to communicate and handle information, solve problems and support their recording. We aim to give our pupils the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to flourish. We want the use of technology to support learning across the entire curriculum and to ensure that our curriculum is accessible to every child. Not only do we want them to be digitally literate and competent end-users of technology but through our computer science lessons we want them to develop creativity, resilience and problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
All classes have interactive whiteboards. Children have regular use of our Ipads and laptops. We teach e-safety and this is embedded in our everyday safeguarding practice. We ensure that access to the internet in our school is safe and is managed with the support of ICT specialists.
