Information and Communication Technology and Computing – we see ICT and Computing as a discrete curriculum subject where we teach pupils about how to use computers, use control technology and communicate in a world which is becoming increasingly interactive.
We also value ICT in enhancing all other areas of the curriculum, eg. the use of our radio station to promote speaking and listening and the use of iPads to develop independence through scheduling. E-safety is of paramount importance and we have rigorous systems in place to ensure that pupils are kept safe in school, as well as teaching e-safety principles and supporting parents with e-safety at home.
Our internet provider is South Gloucestershire Council, who implement strict controls and firewall settings to ensure pupils can only access relevant information online which is pertinent to their learning.
