 Our Vision

At Brandling Primary School, we recognise that pupils are living in a rapidly changing world, in which computing is playing an ever-increasing role. We aim, therefore, to equip children with the skills to adapt to new technology and to give them confidence to use Computing to further their learning and assist them in everyday life. Following the challenges of lockdown, we have an even greater focus on e-safety and online gaming, both in the home and at school. Therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. In doing so, all pupils will have ability and age appropriate access to Computing equipment and resources. We believe that increased Computing skills promote independent learning and give greater access to a wide range of ideas and experiences. Computing skills can be applied to enhance the quality of children’s work across the curriculum and should enhance and enrich the learning process. The aims of our Computing curriculum are:

• To develop children’s individual Computing capability and understanding
• To ensure all children know how to stay safe online
• To enhance teaching and learning in other areas of the curriculum through the cross curricular use of Computing
• To develop Computing as a tool for learning and investigation
• To equip pupils with the confidence and capability to use IT throughout their education, home and future life
• To recognise the potential, and deepen the necessity, of Computing in everyday life
• To stimulate interest in new technologies.
