ICT




Subject leaders: Mr Gendre and Miss Julian

"We live in a rapidly changing technological world where technologies are extending human capacities. We therefore need to prepare pupils to understand, experience and make an active contribution to learn, communicate and develop the appropriate skills.”


At St Mary’s we feel it is vitally important to prepare children for the technological world they will find upon leaving school. They will be the future internet developers, game makers and computer programmers. Their ideas today will be tomorrow’s reality. We must therefore teach them the skills and passion they will need to ensure they are technologically aware and ensure they are prepared for the online universe that now exists. As well as teaching our pupils how to use these technologies we must also teach them how to remain safe whilst doing so.
