Stanton Bridge Primary School

Computing

 

All pupils at Stanton Bridge Primary school have the right to a computing curriculum that has rich and deep learning experiences, relevant to our modern world. With technology playing such a significant role in society today, our Curriculum equips pupils to use computational thinking, problem solving and creativity to understand and change the world as well as being able to access key services with confidence.

 

We teach a curriculum that enables children to become effective users of technology who can:  Understand and apply the essential principles and concepts of Computer Science, including logic, algorithms and data representation; Analyse problems, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems;  Evaluate and apply information technology analytically to solve problems; Communicate ideas well by utilising appliances and devices throughout all areas of the curriculum.

 

We aim for each child to develop the required skills to be an active participant in the digital world and have the required computational skills to be 21st century citizens.

As part of our commitment to provide children with outstanding opportunities across the entire curriculum, we have identified the need to ensure our children are fluent and competent in their use of technology.

 

We believe that it is our duty to ensure our pupils are digitally literate and have the skills and confidence to live in today’s digital world. The need for this has been amplified due to the pandemic and the urgent requirement for all members of society to be confident and competent when using technology.

 

From the beginnings of teaching in our Early Years, we endeavour to ensure our pupils can recognise and use a range of technology that is used in places such as homes and schools, becoming increasingly confident as they move throughout the school so that as they enter KS2 and beyond technology is instilled as part of their lives.

 

Across the school, all pupils for Early Years to Year 6 have access to an iPad during the school day. This year we have proudly increased the number of iPads so that every child in Years 4 and 5 has individual access at all parts of the school day. Furthermore, we plan that by 2024 all KS2 pupils will have an individual iPad to support their learning throughout the day.
