COMPUTING and our IT Acceptable Use Agreements
COMPUTING at St John's
Our Intent for Computing Wonder
The Purpose; getting ready for the future: Pupils will experience the world around them through an ever-changing online, interactive platform. Through exploration, experience and evaluation the children will be equipped with a range of computing skills essential for today’s modern society. The core of computing is computer science. Pupils will explore the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to apply this knowledge through programming. Children will discover the history of technology and how it has improved through technological advancements in science mathematics and design and technology; providing them with insights into both natural and artificial systems. Computing ensures that children are digital literate- able to use and express themselves through information, communication and technology.
Developing Independence; a love of learning, meaningful relationships with subject and others: Pupils will develop an understanding of the relationship between computing and other core subjects.
We use a programme at school called Purple Mash and this is one of the ways of Computing learning is delivered. Cross curricular links are made with all subjects, as children use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve information about the world. These experiences will allow the pupils to build on their prior knowledge, applying it to new and creative environments.
