Our vision for Computing at St Joseph's
At St Joseph’s, our computing curriculum is a coherently planned sequence of lessons to ensure a comprehensive and progressive coverage of the skills and concepts required in the national curriculum. Our aim is to prepare our children for the future and equip them with the skills and knowledge required for an ever-changing digital world.
Our children are taught to use technology responsibly and carefully, being mindful of how their behaviour, words and actions can affect others. They are taught computing in a way that ensures progression of skills, and follows a sequence to build on previous learning.
Our children will gain experience and skills of a wide range of technology in a way that will enhance their learning opportunities, enabling them to use technology across a range of subjects to be creative and solve problems, ensuring they make progress.
Our curriculum instils the sense of enjoyment around using technology and to develop pupils appreciation of its capabilities and the opportunities technology create, manage, organise and collaborate. Exploring software and programs forms a part of the ethos of our curriculum as we want to develop pupils’ confidence when using new technology which is a vital skill in the ever evolving landscape of technology. Through our curriculum we intend for pupils not only to be digitally competent and have a range of transferable skills at a suitable level for the future workplace but also to be responsible online citizens.
All of this is underpinned by the three pillars of our whole curriculum: live wisely, think deeply, love generously.
