Following the National Curriculum for Computing, pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs and systems, and to use the internet safely.
Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate and are able to develop their ideas through information and communication technology, at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world. Computing is promoted in all subject areas and children use computers, laptops and iPads to enhance and embed much of their work in school. Children in Early Years follow our bespoke curriculum where they learn about technology and how it is used in places such as homes and schools, as well as having access to iPads where they interact with a range of software.
Digital literacy is taught regularly over the course of the school year to ensure all pupils know how to stay safe online.
Internet safety day is included within the curriculum and unites the whole school in leaning about how to stay safe in a digital world.
