Computing

Aims and objectives
Technology has become part of the way in which we all work and entertain ourselves. Almost everything we do at school now involves the use of technology:
 online lesson research, teaching plans and resource materials;
 lesson delivery via an interactive whiteboard;
 communication by e-mail;
 document distribution and storage;
 assessment information analysis;
 production and editing of reports.
Thus, through teaching computing, we equip children to participate in a world of rapidly changing technology. We enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also help them to develop the necessary skills for using information in a discriminating and effective way. This is a major part of enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners.
Our objectives in the teaching of computing are to:
 facilitate the finding, selection and use of information;
 teach the use of technology for effective and appropriate communication;
 enable the monitoring and control of events, both real and imaginary;
 teach the application of computing to children’s learning across the curriculum;
 explore the value of technology, both to children and to society in general;
 examine issues of security, personal safety, confidentiality and accuracy
