Computing

'Through our Computing Curriculum at St Laurence's we aim to give our pupils life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technologies and develop digital citizens who can confidently and safely use a range of familiar and unfamiliar software to create, code and search for a purpose.'

Computing Curriculum

 

Through a variety of media, we aim to encourage children to maximise the benefits and opportunities that technology has to offer.  Within the Computing curriculum, children are increasingly being equipped with the skills and knowledge to use technology appropriately and responsibly while also being able to recognise the risks associated with technology and how to deal with them, both within and outside the school environment. At St Laurence’s we aim to ensure that children learn in an environment where security measures are balanced appropriately with the need to learn effectively.

 

The three main outcomes for children as they reach the end of their learning at St Laurence’s are:

  1. To create responsible and thoughtful digital citizens who are able to acknowledge the risks involves when using technology, and understand how these can be prevented.
  2. To develop children’s computing skills with a range of hardware and software, and be able to choose these appropriately for a given task.
