At Ditton C of E Junior School, we understand that computing is a rapidly evolving subject and technology is constantly changing. We aim to prepare our children for their future by giving them the opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills that will equip them for an ever changing digital world. Through computing lessons, our children are taught to explore and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science using a variety of programs. Throughout the curriculum these concepts are revisited repeatedly through a range of themes to ensure the learning is embedded and skills are successfully developed. Our intention is that Computing also supports children’s creativity and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school.
The importance of teaching online safety is becoming more paramount with the increase of social media and the ever changing content online. Online safety, therefore, is taught not only discretely but throughout our curriculum, including in PSHE lessons and during collective worship.
Our aim is to ensure all children are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
