Core Subject


The children are taught to use Information Communication Technology as a tool to enhance and extend learning in other curriculum areas. Our aim is also to equip them with the confidence and ability to use ICT in the ever changing world of technology.



The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

  •  can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  •  can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  •  can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  •  are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.


The children are taught in the ICT suite, which has 30 computers and a variety of other equipment. Each class has a weekly lesson in which the focus is upon improving ICT skills and knowledge. Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard and staff and children use these as a Teaching and Learning tool.


In addition to this, the children are timetabled to use the suite as part of their English and Maths work and other curriculum areas where appropriate. The school has access to the internet.
