Technology is an integral part of everyday life. At St Michael’s, we hope to prepare our children for a future in an environment which is shaped by technology. Our main priority of computing is to engage children with cross-curricular learning through interacting with technology.
We aim to develop confident, independent learners who are able to plan, design, create, program and evaluate information through the use of ICT. As well as the benefits of ICT we are also aware of the risks, this is why we prepare our children to stay safe online through the use of e-safety awareness sessions and safer internet days.
