Subject Lead - Miss Costen
My name is Miss Costen, and I am the subject leader for Computing. At our school, we want pupils to be masters of Technology. Our broad curriculum allows pupils to become creators through encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy. We want all pupils to flourish within Computing and encourage all to have a voice. Our knowledge rich curriculum is designed to allow pupils to apply their knowledge creatively. We try and embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible.
Curriculum Intent - This is what we want the children to learn.
At our school we want pupils to be masters of Technology. Technology is everywhere and plays a pivotal part in pupils' lives. Therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly, and safely. We want our pupils to be creators not consumers and our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this.
Our pupils will understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we utilise technology (especially social media) to model positive use alongside our work on E-Safety. We recognise that the best prevention for a lot of issues we currently see with technology/social media is through education and encouraging all to have a voice.
Building our knowledge in this subject will allow pupils to effectively demonstrate their learning through creative use of technology and enable them to flourish. Our knowledge rich curriculum is designed to be balanced with the opportunity for pupils to apply their knowledge creatively which will in turn help our pupils become skilful computer scientists. We encourage staff to try and embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible.
Curriculum Implementation - This is how we will do it.
Curriculum Impact - This is how we measure it.
