"In Faith and Love, We Learn and Grow."
In line with the 2014 Curriculum for Computing, our aim is to provide a high quality computing education. We believe computing and safeguarding go hand in hand and at St Hugh, we provide a significant focus on internet safety both inside and outside the classroom setting.
As global citizens, it is the aim for children to have a secure grasp of how computers and the internet can be a tool for good with an awareness of the benefits and implications for technology. We want children to understand the growing impact of computing on the world around them.
Our intent for Computing comes from the National Curriculum purpose and aims. Our Computing curriculum will ensure that all pupils:
- are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
Computing planning for KS1 and KS2 is based-upon the Purple Mash scheme of work which is chosen because it ensures children are taught all the areas of the National Curriculum in an interesting and interactive way. Purple Mash is a cloud based platform which children can access at home to support their learning.
All children also complete the Gooseberry Planet Online Safety scheme of work to enhance their knowledge and understanding of online safety.
In Reception, children have access to a range of technology such as IPads, interactive screens and sound buttons linked to the Understanding the World part of the EYFS Framework.. They have opportunities to use and investigate technology during their continuous provision.
The external curriculum has been enhanced by:
Across the school, children use Office Teams to access and submit their home learning. They also have access to a range of online resources to support their learning at home.
