Computing is such an important life skill. Computers are part of everyday life and for most of us, is essential to our lives at home and at work. At Alwoodley Primary we learn vital Computing skills as well as using technology in other curriculum areas.
The aims of the new Computing Curriculum are to equip the future generations with the necessary skills for adult life and employment within the ever-changing technological environment we live in. Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is vital in achieving this, therefore here at Alwoodley Primary, we have ensured our Computing curriculum provides opportunities where children:
• understand the ethical guidelines of using the internet safely,
valuing their own identity,
• appreciate and respect advances in technology to enable them to reflect
on experiences when learning about the world around them,
• actively support each other in challenging problem solving situations
