The use of information and communication technology is an integral part of the national curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Computers, tablets, programmable robots, digital and video cameras are a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. At Wetherby Kensington, we recognise that pupils are entitled to quality hardware and software and a structured and progressive approach to the learning of the skills needed to enable them to use it effectively.
At Wetherby Kensington we recognise that computing is an important tool in both the society we live in and in the process of teaching and learning. Boys use different tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly and creatively. They learn how to employ computing to enable rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of sources. Our vision is for all teachers and learners in our school to become confident users of ICT so that they can develop the skills, knowledge and understanding which enables them to use the appropriate resources effectively as powerful tools for teaching and learning.
At Wetherby Kensington we encompass e-safety into all aspects of our compiling lessons.
