ICT

Vision

ICT and  Computer Science taught throughout student’s time at La Mare de Carteret High School is primarily focused on ensuring all students have the capabilities to deal with computer related requirements of the modern world. We strive to enable independence when working with a computer and for all students to use their understanding to solve any problems they come in contact with, be that a new piece of software or an entirely new computer system.

All students should be confident in all fields within ICT and should be able to use all skills acquired whenever the need arises, the primary focus being on making cross-curricular links to improve work done in other subjects. 

Project work plays a major part in the computing industry and as such is highly promoted within the department. As such, all students are expected to contribute effectively in all group tasks and are encouraged to express their opinions without worry of making mistakes.

Knowledge of issues related to eSafety are expected by all students and the first topic we encounter at the start of each academic year to encourage a deep understanding of responsibility for actions whilst online.

All ICT students at La Mare de Carteret High School are taught basic ICT life skills within their lessons ranging from simple computer fixes to how to work efficiently in an office environment to assist these young people to become successful in whichever work place environment they end up in.

Key Stage 3 Overview

At Key Stage 3, all students will come in contact with the following concepts in ICT:

Basic office skills including Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Desktop Publishing, Presentations and Databases, all of which are taught in a way allowing students to move from different branded software without significant issues

Basics of programming using Kodu, a simple 3D environment programming language, Scratch, a more complicated but still accessible platform, and Python, a text based programming language.

Multimedia skills including audio creation through Audacity, video creation using multiple platforms, animation skills using stop motion and Flash and website creation using Google Sites to promote the multimedia elements they have created

3D design and creation demonstrating the use of Sketchup to create 3-dimensional objects in a digital environment and having the opportunity of then converting this to a model by utilising a 3D printer

Fundamentals of eSafety and all related issues online including appropriate use of Social Media, an understanding of the permanence of materials posted online and promotion of working safely in a digital environment.

Key Assessment Points

Assessment will include the following:

Teacher comments on submitted work through Google Classroom

Evidence based on work submitted to ePortfolios

Half termly effort grades emailed to students

Baseline testing at the start of each year used the Federated Schools Baseline Tests

Key Stage 4 Overview

At Key Stage 4, students follow the Cambridge Nationals ICT course. This includes the following:

A compulsory unit exploring basics of skills required for work in an office environment. This includes competent use of the internet for research purposes, professional use of email to contact clients, confident use of basic desktop packages for word processing, spreadsheets, desktop publishing and databases and an understanding of how to keep files safe and secure.

Several optional units, of which 3 need to be taken, which could include advanced use of spreadsheets or databases, creation of video or audio, interactive content, website creation, advanced knowledge of hardware choices, networking and network management, an extended workplace related project or image creation. All of these require use of software designed for professional users in the appropriate fields.

An additional 3 units chosen from the options above will allow the more able students to achieve a second qualification at Level 2.

Key Assessment Points

Assessment will include the following:

Teacher comments on submitted work through Google Classroom

Evidence based on work submitted to ePortfolios

Half termly effort grades emailed to students

Official marks from exam board processed after units are completed

One 60 minute exam taken early in Year 10

How you can help your child ?

Promoting the following will help students with their work in ICT:

Encourage the use of ICT skills wherever it is feasible. This can be in assisting research or by creating the work digitally. Remember that work done for other school subjects can be used to demonstrate skills within an ICT lesson as well

Help promote the use of computing to assist work as ICT is more and more part of modern life and there are very few jobs whereby ICT related skills are not required

Encourage a responsible attitude to working online and promote the ideals of eSafety

Demonstrate how ICT skills have helped in your place of work

Ask for help from the students when you need it as it encourages problem solving thought processes.
