Through our use of Computing to support and enhance teaching and learning, we would hope that all our staff and pupil’s will;
Develop a range of Computing skills, which will enable them to make effective use of the resources for themselves in their school work; Have confidence to experiment with new software and to apply their developing skills in new contexts; Develop an understanding of the advantages ICT has over other methods, such as written methods and to know when it is inappropriate to use ICT; Develop the patience and persistence to realise their ideas and recognise the possibilities of going wrong, without feeling the sense of failure.
Our schemes of work for Computing as a subject will provide opportunities for all pupils to:
Learn using a wide range of Computing tools including word processors, desktop publishing programs, graphics software, databases, spreadsheets, Logo, simulations, multimedia authoring, email and web browsers;
Have regular, frequent access to ICT resources so that they practise and develop their skills with these tools.
Work individually and collaboratively.
