National Curriculum Programmes of Study

September 2014 signalled a new approach to teaching children about the world of ICT. Technology is developed at an alarmingly fast pace and so to ensure that our children keep up with developments as well as preparing them for the world of work, the emphasis is now on teaching them computer science. You can find out exactly what the children will be learning in each year group by clicking on the Curriculum Map from the drop down menu and we hope to very soon be able to post some of the children's learning online. The children are able to evaluate their learning and keep a record of their achievements which is passed up to the next teacher so that they can appreciate the progress they make as they move through the school. The use of class Netbooks, stand-alone computers, as well as our recently introduced iPads, enable the children to have a broad experience and use of technology. At the heart of our teaching of any ICT is e-Safety, which is taught within subjects as well as discretely, and we aim to ensure that our children have the knowledge and confidence to keep themselves safe in an online world.
