Our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world regardless of their starting points in life and home environment. At Grange View we give our pupils life- skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to flourish and achieve their god given potential. We want our pupils to be able to operate in the 21st century workplace and we want them to know the career opportunities that will be open to them if they study computing, raising aspirations.
Our Computing curriculum focuses on a progression of knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science, information technology and digital literacy. These strands are revisited repeatedly through a range of themes during children’s time in school to ensure the learning is embedded and skills are successfully developed. This is reviewed annually to address gaps in learning and ensures it is not only broad and balanced but continually engages and enthuse the pupils.
Our intention is that Computing also supports children’s creativity and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school. Not only do we want them to be digitally literate and competent end-users of technology, equipped to tackle their next stage of education at Middle School but through our computer science lessons we want them to develop creativity, resilience and problem – solving skills.
