Trotts Hill Primary School and Nursery

Computing

Intent

At Trotts Hill we aim to ensure that all children become digitally literate in this ever changing technical world.

Our curriculum is designed around four key areas, as outlined in the National Curriculum, computer science, information technology, digital literacy and online safety. The combination of these areas allows children to gain skills to develop ideas that they are able to use throughout their lives in a digital world and leave primary school computer literate. It is our intention to enable children to find, explore, analyse and present information using technology creatively.

 

Staff are encouraged to model positive use of technology and ensure their lessons are accessible to all pupils. We want children to be fluent in a range of tools and hope that by the end of Upper Key Stage 2, children will be independent and confident to apply their technological knowledge. 

 

We are highly motivated to ensure that all children will leave Trotts Hill with a strong and secure understanding of how to stay safe online.
