Vision & Aims
Our aim is to become an "e-confident" school where ICT is integrated effectively in the planning, teaching, learning and assessment of all areas of the Curriculum. Our goal is to teach our pupils to be independent, confident and responsible users of ICT in order to prepare them for life in an increasingly ICT rich world. We aim to further develop the potential ICT has upon teaching and learning, therefore making a huge impact on both our pupils and staff.

Delivery of ICT
At Highbury School, we are committed to providing a broad and balanced structured curriculum which gives the pupils relevant experience and understanding of ICT to equip them to live in our current society.
Careful planning will include activities which support learning for pupils with a diverse range of needs & abilities to ensure all children are given the same opportunities as well as ensuring continuity throughout the school and progression from one year to the next.
We believe that there are considerable benefits to be gained from using ICT to support learning. The school staff use ICT in their teaching, where appropriate, to enhance learning, and children are encouraged to use ICT independently in their independent learning tasks or child initiated learning (Foundation Stage).
