At Water Leys Primary School, we acknowledge the demands that technology plays, and will continue to play, in our evolving society. Therefore, we want to equip our children at Water Leys with the skills and knowledge they need to be competent, confident and safe internet users in a flourishing digital world. We aim to provide children with access to high-quality resources and teaching that prepares our pupils to work in the rapidly changing modern world that allows them to aspire to pursue roles in the digital technology industry.
The effective teaching and learning of Computing at Water Leys will be outlined by the ‘National Centre for Computing Education’ (NCCE) and ‘Barefoot Computing’, which ensures full coverage of the National Curriculum and allows for a broad and deep understanding of the three areas of Computing:
Computer Science- underlines the knowledge and skills relating to computational thinking, coding, algorithms and networks.
Digital Literacy- underlines the knowledge and skills relating to online safety and technology in society.
Information Technology- underlines the knowledge and skills relating to digital communication, creating multimedia content and data representation/handling.
The underpinning of these programmes of study will be reflected in a combination of practical and theory-based lessons, from EYFS to Year 6, that promotes discussion and nurtures an understanding to enable digitally literate individuals.
