We teach computing to equip our children with the skills they need to take part fully in a world where school and home life are constantly being transformed by technology. Our goal at STMP is to enable children to confidently and responsibly find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. Our aim is to ensure that our children leave primary school digitally literate and with a range of different skills, including:
- An understanding of what algorithms are and how they are implemented;
- Knowledge of how to design, create and debug computing programmes;
- The confidence to develop, refine and present digital content using a variety of applications and for different purposes;
- Awareness of how to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly.
Being able to use a range of technology safely is essential in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners. It is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this through discrete teaching of skills, trips, workshops, assemblies and a cross-curricular approach.
