At Discovery Bay International School students develop confidence, competence and extend their abilities with the use of ICT in all curriculum areas.

We aim to enable our students to understand and apply a range of ICT skills to effectively communicate, investigate and create in ways that benefit and extend their learning. Our students learn to use a range of technologies appropriately and develop sufficient skills to make informed and sensible choices when working with ICT.

Our specialist ICT lessons are made up of progressive units of study which ensure students develop effective skills throughout the primary school which can be applied to other aspects of learning. Internet safety is a key component of the ICT curriculum. We aim to ensure that our students are able to use technologies critically and safely, ensuring that they are confident users in a range of contexts with a clear understanding of the benefits and associated risks. At DBIS we have taken advantage of the recent changes to the ICT curriculum to incorporate computing, coding and programing skills into the school’s provision. The school’s curriculum has a clear progression of skills from the Early Years through to (I)GCSE Computer Science in the Secondary School. Students are able to develop their computing skills and understanding of programming languages, in all phases of the school, so they are prepared for (I)GCSE Computer Science and beyond.

Whilst ICT is taught as a discrete subject by our specialist teachers, we aim to ensure that our students utilise their skills in order to enhance their learning in other subject areas. As a result, our ICT teachers work closely with the classroom teachers to ensure that students are able to explore and access their learning through a variety of technologies.
