To equip children with the technical skills required to access the jobs of the future and to ensure children have the knowledge, skills and understanding to keep themselves safe online.
Computing at Croyland Primary School
With the increased demand of our digital world, it is essential to equip children with the skills and confidence to not only use various technological devices but to also understand the mechanics of creating new technologies and programmes.
We follow the DfE computing scheme of work which allows our pupils to become explorers, creators, problem solvers and inventors with a tool bag of skills which they can apply across various programs and devices. Children are taught the principles of information and computation, they gain an understanding of how digital systems work and are supported to use this knowledge to programme their own creations on a range of software and devices. Whilst recognising the benefits that technology brings, children are taught about the risks that the technological world can present. They learn strategies to ensure safe and positive experiences whilst online at an age appropriate level.
We follow the SWGfL Digital Literacy Curriculum to ensure progressive, up to date teaching of Online Safety throughout all year groups.
