ICT: Key Stage 4 (Compulsory)

We believe that all students should have a basic understanding of computer skills when they leave St Peter’s School. Therefore, all KS4 students will complete the compulsory information technology component of the national curriculum as part of their provision at St Peter’s School. The content has been derived from recognised qualifications.
 
All students will be able to: 

  • Develop their capability, creativity and knowledge in computer science, digital media and information technology by learning how to browse safely and effectively and how to download content and stream securely.
  • Develop and apply their analytic, problem-solving, design, and computational thinking skills by manipulating spreadsheets, editing pictures, formatting letters, creating presentations and mail-merging information.
  • Understand how changes in technology affect safety, including new ways to protect their online privacy and identity, and how to identify and report a range of concerns by making students and parents aware of how young people can stay safe online via parentmail, assemblies, PDLS lessons, collapsed days and CPD sessions. At St Peter’s we also train digital leaders every year.
