In a world where technology is ever growing, we use ICT to support learners develop their creativity, independence and problem solving skills. Our computing curriculum enables pupils to become thriving problem solvers and enhances their ability to communicate through technology effectively.
Our computing provision is designed to suit all learner’s needs and abilities and pupils explore a wide range of skills including: digital literacy, communication, word processing, video creation and sound, coding and e-safety.
Through digital literacy our pupils learn to become responsible online users. Our curriculum is designed to teach pupils how to stay safe online, how to protect personal information and how to deal with situations safely if they go wrong. This aspect of computing is increasingly important for our pupils and we aim to create responsible online users. By teaching this we aim to promote confidence, self-esteem and positive mental health.
We teach computing in discrete lessons, where appropriate, and make cross curricular links to make sure ICT is embedded across the curriculum. ICT enhances our pupil’s ability to develop their independence and their future opportunities within the working world.
