Computing is an integral part of everyday life and at St Peter’s we believe that children need access to a curriculum which equips them with the necessary skills to harness technology in a safe, purposeful and creative way. It is our hope that all students will leave St Peter’s with the necessary and resilience they need to become active and ambitious part of the community.
Our curriculum is underpinned by the effective use of technology, the children have access to a wide range of software and the regular use of laptops and iPads. Teachers, enhance sessions with compelling and up-to-date sources allowing our children to experience things far beyond the usual. We plan and deliver a wide range of activities that allow children to develop their skills and showcase their learning across the curriculum.
As part of keeping children safe, staff at St Peter’s, use up to date technology to share resources and logs quickly and effectively. Children are taught the importance of internet safety and how to use the internet responsibly. We explore key themes, such as online identity and maintaining Christian values on and off screen. Staff share key resources with colleagues and parents, maintaining a good subject knowledge of current issues fin order to preserve the safety of students.
During sessions, children access the curriculum with a hands on approach, they develop key problem solving and digital literacy skills. At St Peter’s we use a skills based curriculum, each session has a specific learning objective and is linked directly to the National Curriculum. Sessions are evidenced through photographs in class books, on the school website and on the site Seesaw. Children save work into files on the school system and work is stuck into books.
