I am a programmer, a film maker, website designer and data collector. I use Computing to program, communicate and problem solve. I create and publish with confidence and am developing my understanding of processes needed for a range of technologies. I am a digital leader, I know how to stay safe online and use ICT to support and enhance my learning across the curriculum.
Our computing curriculum aims to provide the children with the skills and knowledge necessary to use technologies safely and creatively. Over time, the children will become increasingly more independent using technologies, be able to work collaboratively when solving complex problems and develop resilience when finding solutions by learning from mistakes.
Children will embrace and enjoy technology, understand its importance in their everyday lives and recognise that there are exciting career opportunities to be had in computing technologies.
It is the intention to develop every child’s computing abilities and technical knowledge during their time at St Petroc’s, in order that they leave primary school with a solid foundation in 21st century skills and a love of Computing.
