ICT

The children of Slingsby C P use ICT as part of their everyday learning. They have the opportunity to use a variety of technology whilst learning to use it wisely and safely. Our children enjoy improving their skills in word processing, PowerPoint, internet web page design and coding.

Intent:

  • Slingsby School has constructed an ICT curriculum that is designed to give all learners, particularly the most disadvantaged, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
  • Ensure all pupils within the school have access to ICT equipment in order to cover statutory requirements for each stage.
  • Ensure teachers have access to computer programmes in order to cover statutory requirements.
  • Equip the children with a knowledge of internet safety, use of social media and the perils of online gaming and information sharing.

Implementation:

  • Ensure continuity and progression and enable pupils to access statutory objectives/ concepts set out in the National Curriculum.
  • Ensure that ICT is integrated into all areas of the curriculum in order to provide pupils with the opportunities to apply the skills taught.
  • Timetabling of technology to ensure pupils in all other classes are able to use PCs and tablets to cover statutory requirements and allow for small group directed teaching of ICT skills.
  • Monitor the quality and quantity of equipment available, with the intention of purchasing more electronic notebooks in order to further integrate ICT skills into all lessons, for every pupil, when required.
  • Children are using technology to enhance their learning across the curriculum

Impact:

  • Learners are developing an increased knowledge and skill in ICT in each class, which can be utilised across the curriculum.
  • All pupils within each class have more access to ICT in order to fulfil statutory requirements of coverage.
  • All pupils have access to I-pads
  • Children from class one are learning to use skills which they help their peers with, within the normal school day and access a PC as part of their daily learning choices.
  • Staff are using new ‘free-content’ to teach ICT to students therefore money saved by not having to pay annual subscriptions for published schemes.
