Computing

Intent

Through our computing curriculum, we aim to give every child the skills that will enable them to utilise and embrace new technology in a safe and socially responsible way. At St. Mary’s, we deliver a high-quality computing curriculum, engaging lessons and opportunities. We aim for our children to become autonomous, digitally literate and competent end-users of technology. We use computing to support and enhance learning across the curriculum and through computer science we aim to develop children’s creativity, resilience and critical thinking. We want our children to develop their understanding of themselves as individuals within their community and recognise themselves as members of a globally connected society where they are responsible digital citizens.

We utilise social media with our website and twitter pages, where we are able to celebrate children’s successes and keep our school community involved and informed about school life. In doing this, we demonstrate how social media should be used positively.  Keeping safe online is at the forefront of our curriculum and promoted each week in the school newsletter.
