Children will learn to use a variety of IT equipment, including computers and i-pads, to communicate
and handle information. Each class has access to computers and the internet.
We also have interactive screens and kindles in school to support digital literacy.
Internet access is filtered for schools and only approved educational material is available.
We are continually updating our hardware to support both IT capability and other areas of the curriculum.
The aim of the new computing curriculum is to develop computational thinking.
Children are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to simply programme.
Key Stage 2 children use Scratch to write their own programmes and make their own powerpoint presentations to support cross curricular work.
We use Purple Mash to teach computing and children have access to this virtual learning platform at home too.
‘Teach children how they should live and they will remember it all of their lives.’ Proverbs 22:6
Our vision is to provide a secure, happy learning community based upon Christian Values in which each child is encouraged to reach their full potential.
We aim to support the children's developing skills as learners by:
- Providing a secure foundation upon which individuals can grow into independent, challenged learners.
- Stimulating active learning experiences,that develop children's awareness of themselves as learners.
- Valuing every child irrespectve of gender, disability,age, race or culture and ensure that they have an active voice in school and know that their opinions matter.
- Supporting children in succeeding in their learning and finding opportunities to celebrate their success.
- Developing skills of independence, co-operation and self- motivation.
- Contributing to the wider community, both locally and globally.
