The use of technology is completely embedded in our curriculum; its use is carefully considered to enable the children to best fulfil the learning objective of the lesson. Teachers make learning opportunities relevant and purposeful, engaging children further and giving their work meaning. Imaginative teaching strategies, for example, using Minecraft in Maths to create equivalent fractions, enable children not only to learn in exciting and inventive ways, but also develop key life skills such as communication, collaboration, problem-solving and resilience, ensuring that the children are secondary school ready.
Our children develop a love for learning, enhanced by the use of technology across the curriculum, from the varied and stimulating experiences they are provided with. Not only has this had a significant positive impact on our results but more importantly, it has helped to create successful, happy learners with a thirst for knowledge, a determination to succeed and necessary skills to continue to flourish in secondary school and beyond.
Our Computing curriculum addresses the challenges and opportunities offered by the technologically rich world in which we live. We use computing to enrich our curriculum across the key stages and ensure coverage of the national curriculum expectations. Following a clear progression of skills throughout the school, there are opportunities for children to be creative at the same time having the opportunity to create podcasts, create digital music, and produce films.
