ICT & COMPUTING
ICT is an increasingly important aspect of the world in which we live. Throughout the school the children's ICT skills are taught as a discrete subject and as a support to other areas of the curriculum. It is also used as a cross-curricular tool. Pupils make substantial use of computers in everyday lessons. They are encouraged to communicate their work in a variety of forms. As each child progresses through school the software develops in complexity and range. Pupils are able to use the internet as a resource for their work. Where appropriate equipment and computer software is used to enhance their learning.
