ICT Baseline Standards

ICT Enrichment Programme: Baseline ICT Standard

Our ICT Enrichment Programme are intregated into our curriculum and topics, enhancing their learning experience. Baseline ICT Standards is a set of ICT skill competencies set out in progressive Key Stages. These represent the basic level of knowledge, skills and values that pupils need in order to fully benefit from a curriculum enriched with ICT, and eventually thrive in a technology-driven society. These standards have been benchmarked against overseas ICT standards as well as curriculum and existing practices in our schools.

Pupils will be assessed during their course of study in the school, with the knowledge of the pupils' competence, we can ensure that they have the knowledge to operate and benefit from the use of ICT.

Below are the skill sets that our students will be learning in our ICT Enrichment Programmes and 1:1 Computing lessons:.
