Computing

Subject Leader: Alannah Batchelor

Computing Intent Statement

Computing at St. Francis will encourage and create digital leaders while preparing pupils for the demands of modern society.  Computing and technology will also enhance the learning across the curriculum and equip pupils with the resilience and flexibility to learn from their mistakes. Children will leave St. Francis with the skills, knowledge and independence to be safe, responsible citizens online.

The use of information and communication technology is an integral part of the national curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Computers, tablets, programmable robots, digital and video cameras are a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. At St Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School, we recognise that pupils are entitled to quality hardware and software and a structured and progressive approach to the learning of the skills needed to enable them to use it effectively.

Our Computing curriculum at St Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School has been designed to engage and challenge all pupils, including those with Special Educational Needs or those from disadvantaged backgrounds.
