Computing Intent Statement
Computing Curriculum Intent:
At Oughtrington Primary, we want all students to be able to thrive as responsible, digital citizens. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in our students' lives. Therefore, we want to model and educate our students on how to use technology positively and safely.
We want our students to be confident and competent using a range of technology and our broad computing curriculum includes computer science, digital literacy and online safety. We encourage staff to try and embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. We recognise that technology can allow pupils to share their learning in creative ways. We also understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide for our SEND pupils.
By the end of Key Stage 2, we want all children to be flexible, creative, responsible and confident users of technology, who are able to choose the best tool to fulfill the task and challenge set.
At Oughtrington, we recognise that a secure understanding of computing is essential for our children in order to prepare them for life in the digital age. We have invested in a wide range of resources that will enable our children to thrive and stay safe in an online world.
