ICT is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching ICT we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. ICT skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners.
The school believes that ICT
Gives pupils immediate access to a rich source of materials
Can present information in new ways which help pupils understand and use it more readily
Can motivate and enthuse pupils
Can help children focus and concentrate
Offers potential for effective group working
Has the flexibility to meet the individual needs and abilities of each pupil.
The school’s aims are to:
Provide a relevant, challenging and enjoyable curriculum for ICT for all children
Use ICT as a tool to enhance learning throughout the curriculum
The NCA’s CEOP Command (formerly the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) works with child protection partners across the UK and overseas to identify the main threats to children and coordinates activity against these threats to bring offenders to account.
We protect children from harm online and offline, directly through NCA led operations and in partnership with local and international agencies.

Vodafone have produced a Digital Parenting Magazine which informs parents about the various technologies children are accessing today. There is information on Facebook settings, Xbox360 settings, Blackberry controls, jargon busting and many more ‘How to Guides’. Well worth a read!
Our school is committed to ensuring the online safety and well being of our school community. We aim to support everyone at our school, so that they are able to enjoy all the benefits of the digital world, in a safe and secure way.
Here are the rules that your child will learn at school in order to say safe.
One great way to help is to ask your child if they know these rules!”
