COMPUTING

We believe that pupils at Weatherfield Academy must be able to adapt to the increasingly digital world that surrounds them. Being able to make informed decisions in their digital world provides a safe digital environment for them throughout their lives. To enable pupils to prepare for the digital world, we believe they have the right to access equal, inclusive and appropriate access to ICT and
Computing resources.

 

Aims for pupils:
 

  • To become responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology

  • Use technology safely and respectfully, knowing where to go for help and support when concerns are raised

  • Become digitally literate, being able to use and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology at a level suitable to be active participants in a digital world
