COMPUTING AT ST SAVIOUR'S
Opportunities Without Limits
At St. Saviour’s C of E Primary School, the computing curriculum is designed to provide our children with the opportunity to experience technology, not only in discreet computing lessons but integrated into all lessons. Hardware such as computers, Chromebooks, IPads and cameras are as much a part of our learning tools as are pens and pencils. Subject specific software, from one-off programs to learning platforms, support teaching and learning across all year groups.
The children develop their skills in computing lessons across three main subject areas:
Computer Science - ranging from Learning how to operate a camera to take photographs of meaningful creations or moments in Reception, all the way through to Learning about the history of computers and how they have evolved
over time in Year 6.
Information Technology - starting with using a simple online paint tool to create digital art in the EYFS, to using logical thinking to explore software independently, iterating ideas and testing continuously in Key Stage 2.
Digital Literacy - involves learning to log in and log out in Reception, to understanding that personal information should not be shared on the internet in Key Stage 1 and using search engines safely and effectively in Key Stage 2.
Throughout their school life, our children are taught how to use technology safely and sensibly with their own safety online being an integral part of teaching. Children at St. Saviour's are taught to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly; recognise acceptable/unacceptable behaviour; identify a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.
