Computers and other technological aids are used throughout the school. ICT skills are taught as a discrete subject and as a means of supporting other areas of the curriculum. The children can use computing for research, for problem solving, and to learn new skills to bring them into the 21st Century, where technology is continually developing. The children are encouraged to communicate ideas and information in a variety of forms, where appropriate, using equipment and computer software to enhance their learning.
Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. This subject also enables children to become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology at a suitable level for the future workplace and as active participants in an ever-growing digital world.
