What computing looks like at St Laurence
Our computing curriculum aims to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to thrive in the digital world of today and the future. Ten years from now our school leavers may well be entering career pathways that currently do not exist. Many of these new opportunities will be within computing and technology.
The Computing curriculum can be broken down into 3 strands: Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy (including e-safety).
Our Computing provision aims to provide an exciting, rich, relevant and challenging curriculum which equips children with the capability to use technology throughout their lives. We aim to instil critical thinking, reflective learning and a ‘can do’ attitude for all our pupils, particularly when engaging with technology and its associated resources. We teach pupils to become responsible, respectful and competent users of data, information and communication technology; equipping pupils with skills, strategies and knowledge that will enable them to reap the benefits of the online world, whilst being able to minimise risk to themselves or others.
As a school, we have chosen the Purple Mash Computing Scheme of Work. The scheme of work supports our teachers in delivering fun and engaging lessons which help to raise standards and allow all pupils to achieve to their full potential.
