At Greatham CE Primary School, we want to provide a high-quality computing education to enable all pupils to become active participants in the digital world. It is important to us that the children understand how to use the ever-changing technology to express themselves, as tools for learning, and as a means to drive their generation forward into the future.
Whilst ensuring they understand the advantages and disadvantages associated with online experiences, we want children to develop as respectful, responsible, and confident users of technology, aware of measures that can be taken to keep themselves and others safe online.
Our aim is to provide a computing curriculum that is designed to balance acquiring broad and deep knowledge alongside opportunities to apply skills in various digital contexts. Beyond teaching computing discreetly, we will give pupils the opportunity to apply and develop what they have learnt across wider learning in the curriculum.
The curriculum aims to equip young people with the knowledge, skills, and understanding they need to thrive in the digital world of today and the future.
