Hadrian Primary School

"An outstanding school where children make excellent progress" Ofsted

Computing

From September 2014 the subject ICT changed to Computing across the country. Children learn basic computer science and programming alongside IT skills and how to be safe and literate in an ever changing technological world.

 

At Hadrian Primary School we value the contribution that technology can make for the benefit of all our pupils.  We provide an ICT rich environment from Nursery to Year 6 including use of our computer suite, laptops, programmable toys, IPad's, interactive whiteboards and our own filming equipment.

Hadrian Primary School ICT Vision

 

At Hadrian Primary School we value the contribution that ICT can make for the benefit of all pupils, staff, parents, governors and the wider community.  Our aim is to provide an ICT rich environment which allows pupils to gain the confidence and ability to prepare them for the challenge of a rapidly developing and changing technological world.

We have 3 aims that underpin our vision:

  • To develop the Computing skills of everyone in school so they are confident, safe and independent.
  • To provide interactive learning for adults and children through a range of current technologies.
  • To encourage independent learning for life.

 

ICT Strategy

 

To achieve our 3 aims we will:

 

  • Use ICT where appropriate to motivate and inspire pupils and raise standards across the curriculum.

 

  • Develop pupil’s computing skills, knowledge, understanding and capability through taught Computing lessons and to provide varied opportunities for pupils to apply and consolidate their computing capability across all curriculum contexts.

 

  • Assess ICT systematically with a focus on pupil’s skills and future targets.

 

  • Encourage learning out of school hours and promote links with parents and the wider community.

 

  • Use ICT to support all pupils to ensure they are able to reach their full potential, regardless of gender, disability or ethnicity.

 

  • Make children aware of inappropriate use of ICT and how to use it safely and responsibly.

 

  • Take responsibility as staff for our own continuing professional development in the Computing curriculum and ICT.

 

  • Ensure our ICT resources are up to date, easily accessible and sustainable.

Children's Work

 

Children in the infants have been working excitedly on a TV Chef project.  Children teamed up to plan their own TV cookery show aimed at young children. Teams carefully considered the steps in their recipes, wrote their own scripts and even filmed their own shows.
