Computing

Intent

At TJS, technology and computing plays a key role both within and across our curriculum.  Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in children’s lives.  Our aim is to give our pupils the life-skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way in order to flourish.  We want our pupils to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we utilise technology to model positive use.  We recognise that technology can allow pupils to share their learning and creative ways and we also understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide for our pupils.   We are committed to ensuring that we provide 1:1 I-Pads for all children to facilitate this. 

Our knowledge rich and exciting curriculum always seeks to use innovative ideas and provides the opportunity for for pupils to apply their knowledge creatively.  We review and develop our curriculum in line with recent technological advances to provide the most up-to-date and enriching learning opportunities for our children.  We encourage staff to embed computing across the whole curriculum to support, challenge and enhance.   In regards to online safety, GDPR will play an important role in allowing children to recognise what information is personal to them and who and when it is safe to share it. To do this effectively, children must have a clear understanding of the meaning of personal information and recognise their own responsibility in safeguarding this. Children will be taught about their digital footprint and where to seek support and advice should they need it. We believe a strong understanding of these things will enable children to access modern technologies and communicate effectively whilst developing an ever increasing understanding of how to keep themselves safe from evolving dangers in the digital world.
