“Children develop confident skills on the computer.” ISI Inspection 2014

ICT is an integral part of teaching and learning throughout the School. ICT teaching is two-fold, both as a subject in its own right and across the curriculum.

Each pupil has a weekly ICT lesson with a specialist teacher where essential skills are taught. Our ICT scheme of work reflects the National Curriculum requirements and allows for progression and continuity from Foundation Stage through Key Stages 1 and 2. The School has an excellent, well-equipped ICT suite, opened in spring 2010, where pupils take their ICT lessons. Teaching groups are small and each pupil has the individual use of a computer or laptop, which allows them to partake fully for the whole lesson. In addition, the ICT room is used by Junior pupils for internet research, to word process and to present projects.

Pupils also have access to ICT in their classrooms and subject teaching areas. ICT is used to support the delivery of the curriculum in all subjects. Most classrooms are equipped with interactive whiteboards. Classrooms also have individual computers and printers for independent work.

In addition to computers the School is further resourced with computer peripheries which include scanners, cameras, electronic robots, temperature and sound sensors, minicams and electronic microscopes.
