As Information Communication Technology (ICT) is continually developing and new technologies emerging, we as a school strive to give all children the skills to prepare them for their future. ICT is an essential part of everyday life and will continue to evolve in as yet unforeseen ways, so our children will need the confidence and ability to move with changes as they arrive.
We envisage an environment where technology is an integral part of school life and is used as naturally across the curriculum as any other classroom resource. We believe that the use of technology encourages children and adults to become active and independent learners, who collaborate, plan and communicate more effectively with each other and the wider local, national and global communities, of which we are a part.
Each class has an interactive board which teachers use to engage children and enhance teaching.
Teachers are aware of the power of technology but also ensure that it is used as a supporting tool. It does not replace the skills of reading a book or writing.
Computing is taught discretely as well as being embedded within our exciting curriculum. Computing plays an important part in different projects across the year groups.
