ICT & Computing

ICT to improve learning

Our vision is for teachers and children to be confident users of technology so that we can develop the skills, knowledge and understanding that will enable us to ensure a curiosity for learning and inspire creativity. Throughout the different year groups, children will become autonomous, independent users of technology who gain confidence and enjoyment from their activities.  We will use a range of devices, including iPads and Chromebooks, and ensure that technology is a tool to support teaching and learning across the whole curriculum. We also aim to improve access to learning for pupils with a diverse range of individual needs, including those with SEN and disabilities, using voice typing, specialist software packages such as Clicker and 1:1 laptops.

E-safety will be a part of the curriculum and we will hold regular assemblies informing and updating our children on the benefits as well as dangers of using the internet (at an age appropriate level).


Computing

At Kilnwood Vale Primary School, computing equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. Pupils explore the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Our intent is for all children to be inspired to challenge themselves from the beginning of early years to the end of year 6. Throughout their time at Kilnwood Vale the children will develop the skills and knowledge required to access the wider technological world they are entering. Teachers will nurture the children’s aspirations, enable learning through investigation and as a school community we will celebrate the children’s achievements.

For further information on our Computing curriculum, please see the documents below.
