In today’s ever changing digital world, we are very conscious that our children need to have the skills and knowledge for the future.
We aim to deliver a high-quality computing education that equips our children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Our computing curriculum has strong links with maths, science, design & technology & PSHE.
Computing also ensures that children become digitally literate – able to use and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a suitable level for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
A big part of this, of course, is giving our children the skills and understanding to stay safe on line. We do this in a number of different ways – assemblies, visitors, as part of our everyday teaching and learning and revisit in regularly. We also have pages on our school website to support parents in keeping their children safe.
Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard that is used for teaching and learning by staff and pupils. In addition we have a school set of iPads to support learning and a computer suite located within the library.
This is an area of the curriculum where we are continually reviewing the content to ensure children learn the relevant skills for the future.
