Through our Computing Curriculum our aim is for our children to confidently and independently use and apply information technology skills to support and extend their learning. The use of ICTis often second nature for our pupils and we aim to foster this natural skill and develop it so they are ready to embrace the technological advances of the future.
Children in all Key Stages have access to a 30 computer ICT Suite, shared iPads and shared laptops. The children are taught using IPads and Apple TV’s, visualisers, digital cameras and varies other technologies.
Through developing the new Computing curriculum in school we are aiming for a key emphasis on learning skills for; these will including programming, debugging and exchanging information. Our children are taught how to access information, evaluate its suitability, store it, share it with others and tailor it to meet their own needs.
Digital Literacy is a big part of the curriculum, with children learning how to use ICT safely – at regular points throughout the year children undertake e-safety sessions on topics such as cyberbullying or keeping information safe.
