Our Computing Curriculum
We understand that Computing is a vital part of the curriculum. With a dedicated computing suite used by children in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, pupils receive an hour of devoted computing lessons each week. We understand that our pupils have increasing access to technology at home and supplement that in lessons by teaching online safety as well as discrete computing modules. As well as the annual Online Safety Week, pupils are taught how to stay safe when using technology through termly lessons to reinforce the importance of this area of learning.
The purpose of this policy is to show how at Northlands, we enable pupils to leave primary school as confident, capable and creative users of digital technology, with a secure understanding of the fundamental principles of computer science and as safe, responsible and discerning digital citizens.
