Information & Communications Technology

In order to ensure our students are equipped with the skills needed to excel in an ever-changing world we promote ICT/Computing as an integral part of learning. The students follow the National Curriculum programmes of study for Computing which are linked to curriculum content. . The emphasis is on developing the skills needed to use ICT safely and effectively as a tool to support and enrich learning and improve progress across the curriculum. From the earliest possible age our children become confident in:

  • Finding things out
  • Developing ideas and making things happen
  • Exchanging and sharing information
  • Reviewing, modifying, and evaluating work as it progresses
  • Coding

They achieve this through:

  • Control technology (Blue-Bots)
  • Mobile technology (tablets)
  • Computing (laptops)

By the end of Year 6 students will be able to:

  • Draft and edit skilfully
  • Create animations
  • Use advanced programming
  • Upload and share work
  • Search databases to respond to questions
  • Write simple to complex computer codes (age dependent)
  • Stay safe online

By the end of Year 9 students will be able to:

  • Design, use and evaluate computational abstractions understand key algorithms that reflect computational thinking
  • Use two or more programming languagesUse advanced programming
  • Understand simple logic used in circuits and programming
  • Understand the hardware and software components that make up computer systems
  • Create, reuse, revise and re-purpose digital artefacts for a given audience
  • Understand a range of ways to use technology safely, respectfully, responsibly securely
