Computing and ICT
Computing and information and communication technology is an integral part of the
national curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life: in an increasingly
technological world, it is vital that children develop computational skills and
understanding. Computing is concerned with how computers and computer systems
work, and how they are designed and programmed. ICT encompasses the use of
technology to investigate, organise and communicate information and ideas.
The schools’ aims for Computing and ICT are:


To teach pupils to use ICT and Computing confidently, purposefully and
appropriately
To provide a relevant, challenging and enjoyable curriculum for ICT and
computing for all pupils.

To meet the requirements of the national curriculum programmes of study for
computing.

To respond to new developments in technology.

To equip pupils with the confidence and capability to use ICT and computing
throughout their later life.

To enhance learning in other areas of the curriculum using ICT and
computing.
To develop the understanding of how to use ICT and computing safely and
responsibly.
For children to be trained in safe procedures for the use of the Internet


The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:

can understand and apply the fundamental principles of computer science,
including logic, algorithms, data representation, and communication

can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical
experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems

can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar
technologies, analytically to solve problems.

are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and
communication technology.
Safe use of the internet
We believe that providing access to the internet in school raises educational
standards and supports the professional work of staff.
Teachers and pupils have access to web sites world-wide (including museums and
art galleries) offering educational resources, news and current events. There are
opportunities for discussion with experts in many fields and to communicate and
exchange information with students and others world-wide.
We acknowledge that some material available on the internet is unsuitable for pupils
and the safety of pupils in our school is our primary concern. The following key
measures have been adopted to help ensure that our pupils are not exposed to
unsuitable material:

In school, we access the Internet through a broadband connection to County
Hall which provides a service designed for pupils including a "firewall" filtering
system intended to prevent access to material inappropriate for children.
There are two levels of filtering with the stronger filtering on pupil accounts
and a lower level of filter on Teacher accounts. For this reason, all pupils
using the Internet in school should be logged on to pupil accounts.

children using the internet will normally be working in the classroom, during
lesson time and will be supervised by an adult (usually the class teacher) at
all times;

staff will check that the sites pre-selected for pupil use are appropriate to the
age and maturity of pupils;

staff will be particularly vigilant when pupils are undertaking their own search
and will check that the children are following the agreed search plan;

pupils will be taught to use e-mail and the internet responsibly in order to
reduce the risk to themselves and others;

pupils are taught to tell a teacher immediately if they encounter any material
that makes them feel uncomfortable.
