Vision

Education Anytime, Anywhere, Anyplace

In alignment with our overall St Aidan’s Catholic Academy mission and as facilitators of learning, we believe that technology is a powerful tool that creates unique and relevant instructional experiences providing enriching, engaging, and varied sensory engagements that ultimately enhance the learning process. Technology is developing at an increasingly rapid rate and at St Aidan’s Catholic Academy we are committed to nurturing active, lifelong learners preparing them to be responsible, contributing members of society and global citizens who can use digital technology as a tool to help shape their lives and their community. Our curriculum is shaped to enable all students to access ICT and develop digital skills for the future.

We believe that St Aidan’s Catholic Academy technology initiatives will provide powerful resources, with which students will engage in challenge-based meaningful learning that will encourage them to analyse, collaborate, discover, and create thus preparing them to become responsible, Christian citizens of the digital world.

These elements, we believe, are vital in all areas of a child’s education. In a digital world, however, there is a need for our learners to be able to use technology to present information, communicate and discover.

At St Aidan’s Catholic Academy we expect that a pupils learning environment contributes to the development of these skills and that all pupils have access to suitable, up-to-date equipment that enables learning to take place anywhere/anytime and in any place.
