In ICT we work on three different skills:

  • Computing and Programming
  • Information Technology
  • Digital Literacy

 

Through our teaching of ICT we aim to:

  • stimulate pupils’ interest in and curiosity about how technology works
  • encourage children to become independent learners and use a range of new technologies to support their own learning
  • ensure pupils have a good understanding of a range of technologies and programmes so they can become employed in the role of the future
  • understand how they can remain safe with their use of technology

 

Through ICT we can also:

  • Improve pupils’ skills in literacy, numeracy and ICT
  • Develop pupils’ thinking skills
  • Promote pupils’ awareness and understanding of gender, cultural, spiritual and moral issues
  • Develop pupils as global citizens

SMSC in ICT:

  • Spiritual: model learning
  • Moral: e-safety
