COMPUTING

 

The real power of interactive technologies is that they let us learn in ways that aren’t otherwise possible or practical. - David Lassner 

At Wolston St Margaret’s we aim to prepare our children to be "lifelong learners" with the confidence and ability to develop their skills and understanding when meeting new challenges.  As computing is an increasing part of life today, it is essential that we provide our children with the skills, creativity and enthusiasm to live and thrive in a world increasingly dependent on computing.  We aim for all pupils to gain the confidence and ability that they need in this subject to prepare them for the challenge of a rapidly developing and changing technological world. 

We ensure teachers have the necessary training to deliver an up to date curriculum. We also aim to develop pupil’s computing skills, knowledge, understanding and capability through taught computing lessons. The use of ICT is used to enhance and extend children’s learning across the whole curriculum whilst developing motivation and social skills. Our vision is for the use of these technologies to enrich the experience of all pupils. 

We ensure that each child is able to use the Internet in a safe and respectful way in School. They learn to understand the necessary precautions to take, to stay safe and know where to seek help.  Children  also utilise the Internet efficiently to enhance their learning of all subjects. Using tablets and desktops, the children learn key skills such as computational thinking, word processing and programming.
