At St. Clare's Catholic Primary School, we aim to develop our children into 'life-long learners' giving them the information and communication skills they will need both today and in the future.
To enable this to happen, we have a wide range of up - to - date computing equipment that is available to staff and children to help children become confident, competent and responsible users of computing technologies.
We aim to use computing to raise standards across the whole curriculum to engage and excite learners, as well as enrich their learning experiences by allowing them to access a wealth of knowledge and ever increasing virtual experiences.
As part of the computing curriculum, the children have the opportunity to develop their knowledge of how information technology is used in the wider world through discrete computing lessons. They will also learn how to code and program objects to carry out specific tasks and learn skills that will help them become life - long learners.
We will ensure that the children are aware of the possible risks of using the internet, both in and out of school, through assemblies, PSHE lessons, displays and Safer Internet day activities in February.
We will endeavor to keep pace with educational developments in computing and have a commitment to teachers having the necessary tools to do their jobs effectively. We will continue to ensure we have access to the most effective and emerging technologies.
