ICT Vision Statement

We believe that the use of information and communications technology (ICT) encourages pupils and staff to become active and independent learners, who collaborate, plan, analyse and solve problems, communicate more effectively with each other and the wider local, national and global communities of which we are a part of.  It encourages the development of skills to use the new technologies we will inevitably encounter in daily life.

We envisage our school as an environment where the use of ICT is an integral part of our everyday teaching, learning and administration.  We aim to provide our staff with the skills to allow them to gain the benefits of new technologies so that they can impact positively on learning outcomes for all pupils through the planned curriculum.
