Computing allows all children access to a wide range of resources. They use ICT tools to find analyse, exchange and present information responsibly, creatively and with developing confidence.
In addition, we use a variety of materials to teach the children how to keep themselves safe in an online world. These include: ‘Think U Know’ materials, the Smart Crew and Keep Myself E-Safe from WMNet Keep Safe.
Computing is taught as a discreet subject and as part of all areas of the curriculum.
The purpose of study for the Computing Programme of Study enables learners to achieve the skills and process to become a:
Digital citizen – who is safe and responsible
Digital creator – who is logical and creative
Digital investigator – who can develop ideas
Digital communicator – who is digitally literate.
To complete these the children will follow these headings: Programming, e-Safety, Handling Data, Multimedia and Technology in our lives.
