Technology will never replace great teachers but technology in the hands of great teachers is transformational
The National Curriculum for Computing in England aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Can understand and apply the principles and concepts of computer science, including data representation;
- Can analyse problems and have repeated experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems;
- Can evaluate and apply information technology;
- Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information technology.
There is a particular emphasis on the skill of 'coding' and for children to use technology safety, respectfully and responsibly. We follow the "Switched On Computing" program of study.
All Computing lessons involve an aspect of E-Safety
