At Asquith Primary school, we understand that the use of ICT is an important part of the National Curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Below is how the school intends to make this provision which enables children to be able to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information.
Our intent is that pupils:
- Will be educated on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely.
- Will become creators of technology not just consumers.
- Use technology to enhance our broad curriculum.
- To understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we utilise technology (especially social media) to model positive use.
- To recognise that technology can allow everyone to share their learning in creative ways.
- Know that we encourage staff to try and embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible.
We will implement this through:
- In-depth planning of computing which links to our progression maps;
- Creative, fun and inspiring computing lessons which are linked and sequenced with cross curricular subjects;
- Providing specific timetabled computing sessions to teach stand-alone computing aspects.
- Using a variety of resources to enhance learning (using a variety of apps on the ipads);
- Using the National Curriculum alongside the EYFS which has been integrated into our school long term plans.
We will measure the impact by:
- Looking at evidence of children’s work through reviewing pupil’s knowledge and skills digitally through assessments.
- Assessments being compared to the whole school progression document. (Pupil interviews and Teacher discussion)
- Looking at the development of skills across year groups and evidence of progression in work produced will be seen within class books and on seesaw.
- Pupil’s being able to articulate their learning and know how to use the apps on the ipads with minimal support.
