ICT to improve learning
Our vision is for teachers and children to be confident users of technology so that we can develop the skills, knowledge and understanding that will enable us to ensure a curiosity for learning and inspire creativity. Throughout the different year groups, children will become autonomous, independent users of technology who gain confidence and enjoyment from their activities. We will use a range of devices, including iPads and Chromebooks, and ensure that technology is a tool to support teaching and learning across the whole curriculum. We also aim to improve access to learning for pupils with a diverse range of individual needs, including those with SEN and disabilities, using voice typing, specialist software packages such as Clicker and 1:1 laptops.
E-safety will be a part of the curriculum and we will hold regular assemblies informing and updating our children on the benefits as well as dangers of using the internet (at an age appropriate level).
In EYFS and KS1 we will use Code-a-pillars and Scratch Junior to help children learn about algorithms and how computers work.
