St Thomas' Catholic Primary School

Truth and Courage

“Pupils at St Thomas’ Primary make rapid progress as they move through the school and achieve highly in all the subjects taught. They are exceptionally well prepared by the time they leave the school to start the next stage of their learning.”


The teaching of computer skills is integrated into most areas of the curriculum. In Key Stage 2 specific computer skills such as word processing, desk top publishing, graphic modelling, use of database software, e-mailing, use of the internet and multi-media presentations. Pupils in Key Stage 2 are taught by a specialist ICT teacher. Through Computing, pupils are taught to find things out, develop ideas and make things happen, exchange and share information, and review, modify and evaluate their work as it progresses. Access to the internet is controlled to prevent children connecting to inappropriate sites.
