Digital Competence – Cross Curriculum
Digital competence plays an increasingly powerful role in the lives of children, for communication, networking, information, leisure and entertainment as well as for an increasing range of educational applications. All schools are expected to teach children to become digitally competent and the Welsh Government has provided for all schools the Digital Competence Framework which, in the same way as the National Literacy and Numeracy Framework, sets out clear guidance and expectations for all pupils in digital competency.
The ability to use digital technology skills creatively is an increasingly common feature of the modern world. In our school, all teachers and other staff will help our pupils to begin to develop digital competence, and knowledge to do this. We want to enable our pupils to develop the appropriate skills to apply to practical activities across all areas of the curriculum and in their lives outside of school.
