St Margaret's Computing Intent
What is the intent of our Computing curriculum?
At St Margaret’s C of E Junior School, we aim to embrace technology as it has become an integral part of everyday life. Through our Computing curriculum, we aim to give our pupils the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to flourish. We want our pupils to be able to operate in the 21st century workplace and to know the career opportunities that will be open to them if they study Computing and aspire to achieve these. We want children to become autonomous, independent users of computing technologies, gaining confidence and enjoyment from their activities and we recognise that Computing can allow children to share their learning in creative ways. We want our pupils to be creators not consumers and our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology, digital literacy and online safety reflects this. Through the use of various digital mediums, children at St Margaret’s will develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills that enable them to become reflective, creative learners who are not afraid of the ever-changing digital world.
