Computing

Computing

Computing is an integral part of our daily lives and at Godstone Primary and Nursery School we want to equip children with the confidence and skills necessary to fully participate in the modern digital world.

Our intent is to;

 

  • Provide a broad, balanced, progressive, challenging and enjoyable curriculum for all pupils focusing on achieving the expected standard laid out in the National Curriculum
  • To equip pupils with the confidence and skills to use digital tools and technologies throughout their lives
  • To develop the understanding of how to use computers and digital tools safely and responsibly
  • To enhance and enrich learning in other areas of the curriculum using IT and computing

 

 As a school, we use the ‘Teach Computing’ resources alongside the ‘Education for a Connected World’ framework to support the delivery of the computing and online safety curriculum. 

 

Further information can be found in our Online Safety policy in the ‘About us’ area and in the Online Safety Progression document.
