ICT

Intent

Through teaching computing, we intend to equip our children allowing them to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. Through our computing curriculum at St John’s we aim to give our pupils the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to flourish.

It is our intention to enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing skills necessary for children to be able to use information in an effective way.

We want the use of technology to support learning across the entire curriculum and ensure that our curriculum is accessible to every child. We want them to not only be digitally literate but also competent users of technology, developing their creativity, resilience, problem solving and critical thinking skills.
