Information and Communications Technology Vision for Hatch Warren Infant School
We were awarded our ICT Mark in June 2012.
At Hatch Warren Infant School we aim to develop independent learners who are well equipped for the future. ICT skills are an integral part of teaching and learning for all our stakeholders. We believe that ICT motivates and excites our learners and enables them to achieve high standards.
Hatch Warren Infant School believes that:
· Fluency in the use of ICT is becoming as important as fluency in language and number
· ICT deserves to have a planned profile in the school curriculum equivalent to that for other essential skills.
· ICT is becoming the most efficient medium for finding and using information as part of the learning process.
· An effective ICT strategy should result in an improved quality of work and greater pupil attainment across subjects.
· Information is the key raw material of the Information Age.
· Pupils need to be fluent in its use for learning, leisure and work.
· All learners, child or adult, are entitled to opportunities to use computers whenever it can make learning more effective.
· We will constantly seek to improve the quality of teaching and learning using ICT.
Our ICT strategy will be guided by the following principles:
· Investments in ICT resources must be linked to raising the achievement of pupils
· We will seek to evaluate and maximise the effectiveness of our ICT systems
· We will not allow obstacles to stand in the way of developments which ensure the effective use of expensive resources
· ICT resources will be deployed so as to provide the greatest amount of use to the greatest number of pupils
· We will seek to support and to expect development of highest standards of teaching and learning using ICT
We seek to develop the use of ICT:
· to promote pupils skills in using ICT thoughtfully
· to help pupils apply their ICT skills effectively to their work in subjects
· to build a library of curriculum related electronic source materials to promote the process of research in subjects
· to promote the skills associated with enquiry and using information as a raw material to build information products’
