We are now one of the top 50 schools who are using technology!
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.
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.
Use creativity with technology in each and every aspect of the curriculum and life.
When teaching computing at Hadrian Primary School, our aim is to equip the children with the skills required to use computers effectively to enable them to maximise their potential. To do this, we aim to develop teaching strategies which promote resilience, independence, critical thinking, communication skills, basic skills and problem solving. We hope our pupils at Hadrian will become confident with technology, but will also see the benefits of using technology in later life. We aim for our children to become digital leaders, who are ready to meet the challenges of their digital future.
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, C-Touch screens and our own filming equipment.
Some of our teachers are now Apple Teachers. This means you can expect lots of amazing activities using the iPads. We will be teaching the children how to use Apps such as: Spark Video, iMovie, Book Creator and Do Ink Green Screen.
Here are some Apps which we use in our classrooms. You can even try them at home.

Here is one of our poems written and performed by one of our fabulous Y6 children. We were learning about Muhhamad Ali and we were inspired by his beliefs of freedom. We then tweeted this video to Muhammad Ali's daughter and she replied thanking us for our lovely work. We hope you enjoy it.
We love using our iPads and apps. Here are somethings we have created using them.
Here we have news reports from Year 6 about the famous sinking of the Titanic. We have used iMovie and Do Ink Green Screen.
