Key Stage 3

ICT

In year 7, students use software applications to present and process information and learn how to organise electronic resources, files and folders. They will also be introduced to the school’s VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) called iSpace and learn about safe working practices when using the Internet and email. Work and resources are available online using the school’s VLE, allowing anytime and easy access to all class resources by students and parents /carers. Students can access this area from anywhere in school and email tasks to themselves to complete at home.

All groups in year 7, 8 and 9 will study a range of topics including web design, internet safety, databases and spreadsheets. Students will also be introduced to basic computing modules which will include fundamentals of computer programming, data representation in computers, logic and programming in Python 3.4.
