Computing

Computing is such an important life skill.

Technology is 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 and knowledge as well as ensuring technology is embedded throughout the curriculum.

 

The aims of the 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

   where design, programming and construction is essential
