Key Curriculum Drivers
Computing supports our wider curriculum vision through our key drivers in the following ways:
|Curriculum Drivers||How Computing supports this driver|
|To know and appreciate that the world is exciting and diverse||Children study computing through three areas of focus:
- Computer science: the understanding of the use of software and programs.
- Information technology: the study or use of computer systems and networks for storing, retrieving and sending information.
- Digital literacy: the development of the skills needed to live, learn and work confidently and safely in an increasingly digital world.
|To develop high levels of oracy||Children will develop their understanding of online safety, use multiple different programs to achieve a variety of goals and use subject-specific vocabulary to describe processes and outcomes.|
|To encourage critical thinking|
|To instil ambition for the future||Children will leave Henry Chichele Primary School equipped with the skills needed to thrive in the modern world, mindful of the increasing importance of online technology and computers in their daily life.|
