Our Computing Curriculum
Computing prepares pupils to participate in a digital world in which work and other activities are increasingly transformed by access to varied and developing technology. Pupils use ICT tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly, creatively and with discrimination. They learn how to employ computing to enable rapid access to ideas, information and experiences from a range of sources, people, communities and cultures. Increased capability in the use of computing promotes initiative and independent learning, with pupils being able to make informed judgements about when and where to use computing to best effect, and to consider its implications for home and work both now and in the future. At Sacred Heart RC Primary we acknowledge that computing and e-learning makes a massive contribution to all aspects of school life, for pupils, staff, governors, parents and the wider community, in this ever changing technological world.
We believe that all children should be given opportunities to engage in a broad computing curriculum that ensures they are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology. We are well equipped with IT infrastructure including laptop trollies, iPads and interactive whiteboards in all classrooms. Children use cameras and recording equipment to aid their learning and make safe and extensive use of the internet and our learning platform.
We use knowledge organisers to help the children remember important vocabulary and information. You can use these to help your child at home.
*Early Years Foundation Stage have there own Knowledge Organisers that feed into our curriculum from Year 1.
