School vision for the teaching of Computing
Our computing vision, at St Oswald’s Primary school, is to keep our pupils safe online. We provide them with the knowledge and skills to do so, promoting safe messages throughout the curriculum.
We recognise that as a school we have a responsibility to prepare the pupils for their future by improving their knowledge of and understanding of how imperative technology is as an aid to learning and the real world beyond school.
As computing is an increasing part of life today it is essential that all pupils gain the confidence and ability that they need in this subject, to prepare them for the challenge of a rapidly developing and changing technological world. The use of ICT will enhance and extend children’s learning across the whole curriculum whilst developing motivation and social skills.
We aim to expose children to the educational developments in computing and provide them with the opportunities to access to the most effective and emerging technologies.
