Computing Curriculum Statement
Computing is an integral part of everyday life. It plays, and will continue to play, an immeasurable part in the children’s lives as they grow, move onto their next phase of education and beyond. At Fairfield Primary School, it is our aim to provide pupils with the tools and confidence to use computational thinking and creativity to thrive in a digital environment. The children will develop digital literacy skills and become active and responsible participants in a digital world.
Each child will become a competent, confident and creative user of information and communication technology. They will learn to use the Internet in a safe and respectful way. Through our robust E-Safety programme, the children will understand the effect our online behaviours and attitudes can have on others, the necessary precautions to take to stay safe and know where to seek help.
Through stimulating, challenging and engaging experiences delivered in our high-quality Computing curriculum, children will become confident and independent users of a range of software and hardware, preparing them for their future in an increasingly digital world. Children will utilise the Internet efficiently, understand how to be discerning in their use of online materials and be able to identify reliable sources of information. The children will develop the curiosity, enthusiasm and courage to use and apply their skills and enhance their learning across the curriculum and in the real world.
