At St. Nicholas of Tolentine, we recognise that pupils are living in a rapidly changing world, in which ICT is playing an ever-increasing role. As an integral part of this curriculum, pupils at we use creativity and imagination in the acquisition of skills and knowledge required by the computing curriculum, considering pupils’ own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on other disciplines such as music, science, engineering, DT and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present use of technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
