Westward School

INFORMATION COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY (ICT)

At Westward we prepare our pupils to appreciate the relevance of ICT in our rapidly changing world – an essential tool for learning, communicating, finding information and for controlling and understanding their environment.

ICT is presented as a creative and fascinating process in which pupils are encouraged to use their own initiative, imagination, reasoning and investigative skills.

Pupils develop their ICT skills in the Early Years, learning how to operate simple equipment using a mouse and keyboard, progressing through the years, to finally creating their own multimedia presentations, databases and spreadsheets.
