Below is a brief outline of the I.C.T curriculum for each year group. Once your child is registered with us you will receive an information pack which includes the full curriculum. If you would like to enquire online, please click here.

💻 Children will be taught to design, write and debug programs to accomplish specific goals. They will use logic to explain how simple algorithms work. They will be taught how computer networks, such as the internet, function and how to use search technologies effectively. Pupils will be taught to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly.

🖥Computing lessons will take place in the Computing Room and tablets are available for use in Computing lessons and for independent research in all other curriculum areas.

Whatever pupils go on to do in the future, IT skills will most probably be essential, as everyone is now expected to have sound computer skills. Outside of the classroom and the work place, skills such as using a digital camera and subsequent editing of photographs are now required in everyday life. Pupils will therefore be taught the following skills:

•Word Processing•Spreadsheets•Desk Top Publishing•Graphical Representation of Data•On-line Communications•Multimedia Presentations•Monitoring & Control•Video Editing•Digital Imagery•Graphic Design•App Design•Coding
