Computing at Hanbury's Farm School
At Hanbury’s Farm and Oakhill Primary School Federation, we strive to prepare our children for a future in an environment which is shaped by technology.
The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:
The provision we offer and the opportunities given equip the pupils with computational thinking and creativity in order to understand the principles of information and computation and how digital systems work alongside programming.
As well as discussing the benefits of computer technology, we are also aware of the risks and in order to prepare our children to stay safe, the teaching of online safety is included in our computing curriculum. We also celebrate Safer Internet day every year as a whole school. Next year Safer Internet Day is on the 7th of February with the theme being 'Want to talk about it?'
The above National Curriculum statements are met through the implementation of the Entrust Education technologies Computing Scheme of Work.
Alongside this, we deliver Digital literacy though specific lessons aligned to the Education for a connected world through the Project Evolve Toolkit. This provision ensures they become digitally literate so that they can express themselves and develop their ideas through information and computer technology– at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
