Use of technology in the classroom

We enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in an effective way. We want children to know more, remember more and understand more in computing so that they leave school fully computer literate. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this.

We have built a computing curriculum that develops pupil’s learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge of the world around them that ensures all pupils can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.

We implement a computing curriculum that prepares pupils to live safely in an increasingly digital society where pupils can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
