The ICT curriculum at Jolesfield is much more than working on computers. The vision is to improve learning outcomes through the cross-curricular application of ICT, by embedding it into lesson planning and promoting ICT as a tool for engaging the children and enriching their learning. Carefully designed and delivered lessons will prepare the students for success in a global environment of information and technology.
We aim to provide children with the skills and attributes to access and use information technology throughout their lives, showing awareness and understanding of the wider issues of E-safety and the ramifications of their digital footprint.
Facilities and Equipment
Alongside the planned computing curriculum, children will have access to a range of digital equipment including cameras, Chromebooks, and desktop computers. Programmable devices such as Beebots are included as part of Maths, Science and Geography related tasks. The use of interactive whiteboards is standard throughout the school.
The school has a strict Online Safety policy to protect all those who access the internet whilst on the school site and teaches children to remain safe within other environments outside the school when using technology.
