Computing

Computing is an integral part of learning and life in our modern and ever-changing and developing world.

We want all of our children to become competent users of technology and recognise the positive benefits in the modern world.

We want to instil good computing habits and enable our children to become responsible and safe users of technology as they explore the virtual world.

Computers are now part of everyday life. It is essential in our lives – at home, at school and at work.

We endeavour to equip our children with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing that will be of benefit to them for the rest of their lives.

Elements of the Computing and ICT curriculum are taught in discrete lessons throughout the school year. It is by no means restricted to these stand-alone lessons but interwoven into all aspects of the curriculum, developing children’s digital literacy.

Children have access to a range of digital media and devices to enhance their ability to utilise technology; these include: laptops, iPads, Tablets, Interactive Screens in all classrooms, cameras and visualisers.

We aim to teach all children that whilst technology has massive benefits, it also has its limitations. We are keen for our children not to become over reliant on technology.

Children develop a competence in using and applying a range of skills whilst also recognising the importance of their digital footprint and safe use of the technological world around them.
