ICT & Computing

Our Vision for Computing


At St Aidan`s Catholic Primary Academy our vision is to give children a high quality Computing curriculum which equips all of our pupils for the future in our ever changing world.

When possible, we aim to utilize the most up to date ICT resources and recognize the need to remain aware of the potential uses of any emerging

technologies. In addition, we hope to utilise existing resources both within the school and the wider community. We want our children to be able to express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology. We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, life-long learners who will reach a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Our aims:

The measure of success will be our pupils developing as lifelong learners and confident, responsible individuals who contribute positively to society. We will strive for excellence in all aspects of our work.

This means:


  • Valuing all pupils and staff as individuals, celebrating diversity and promoting equality, living our lives according to our Mission Statement.
  • Enabling every child to succeed as an independent, enthusiastic and confident learner.
  • Building an inspirational, inclusive, learning environment, raising attainment and progress for all pupils and realising potential. 
  • Preparing them for the advancing technological world we live in.
  • Developing a dedicated, skilled staff; working with commitment to a common purpose- a high quality education for all pupils.
  • Ensuring lessons and learning experiences are of the highest quality for every pupil and assessment is used to make learning and teaching highly effective and help everyone understand how to improve.
  • Establishing strong relationships with parents and the wider community with effective communication.


Our Computing curriculum is made up of CS- Computer Science, I.T - Information Technology and DL - Digital Literacy.
