The use of ICT in society expands at an ever-increasing pace and it is an essential part of everyday life for the staff and pupils alike at Blundell’s Prep. We offer a curriculum that matches the needs of society today and pupils will have unprecedented access to facilities.
At Blundell’s Prep these include a PC suite, interactive whiteboards and laptops – approaching 50 around the school. Pupils also have access to cameras, scanners and other peripherals such as floor turtles.
The aims of the Blundell’s Prep ICT department are:-
To use the National Curriculum for Key stages 1 and 2 as a guide to teaching ICT in Years 1 to 6.
To stimulate the use of Information Technology in all subjects taught at Blundell’s Prep.
To enable and encourage every pupil to develop relevant IT skills and an understanding of the impact of ICT on society.
To foster the enjoyment and confidence in using and applying Information and Communication Technology.
