Our ICT vision statement at Southmead has been created to help our children access a high-quality computing education that equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world in the future.
We hope to provide a curriculum which prepares Children for the demands of the technological world of the future. We want to use innovative ways to enhance attainment and support the development of a more diverse curriculum which enhances Children’s creativity and exploits opportunities to inspire wonder and awe within them. We want to use ICT to engage Children in the concept of the wider world and challenge how they see themselves within this world.
We want to be open to experimentation with new technological developments and working styles which could enhance the service we provide. We want to offer training to our staff and parents to support and empower them in this every changing world. We want to ensure that we safeguard our Children and are always mindful of the implications of developing new technologies within our school. We want to ensure ICT use is always appropriate and that while developing ICT within the school, its influence should not debase the effective practice which is already in place. We want to ensure the environmental impact of our technologies is minimal. We will strive to ensure that the use of ICT funding is well considered and that its impact is constantly evaluated.
