At Star we aim to integrate ICT into the main curriculum, developing our children’s practical computing skills.
By ICT (Information Communications Technology) we mean two things: the teaching of ICT skills in using specific hardware and software and the use of ICT to support the wider school curriculum. All pupils have a timetabled lesson in the ICT room each week. There are additional opportunities for classes in Primary to use both iPads and the computers in both the ICT room and the Library, supporting research development and providing cross-curricular learning opportunities.
This year ICT (Information, Communication and Technology) is known as Computing. The programme of study focuses on three main aspects of Computing: Digital Literacy, E-Safety and Computer Science.
