How can we give children the confidence and ability they need for a world that revolves around technology? At Lion Academy Trust we’ve created a rich and detailed sequential curriculum for ICT that’s all about stretching children and encouraging them to work independently.
It builds on “skills” lessons, of course, that teach children how to use hardware and software, but we use ICT capabilities to support teaching across the curriculum too, particularly in English, Maths and Art. Children use IT as they would use any apparatus such as a pencil or pen, it is not in addition to what we do, rather an extension.
We have mapped the best platforms and apps for children to work with and we’ve also added a clearly defined E-Safety strand matched to the Government’s requirements which keeps pace with the computing progression of learning at every stage
