Computing and digital learning at Springhead Park Primary School intends to develop ‘thinkers of the future’ through a modern, ambitious and relevant education. We want to equip pupils to use computational thinking and creativity that will enable them to become active participants in the digital world. It is important to us that the children understand how to use the ever-changing technology to express themselves, as tools for learning and to drive their generation forward into the future.
Whilst ensuring they understand socio-cultural themes associated with online experiences, we want children to develop as respectful, responsible and confident digital citizens who are aware of measures that can be taken to keep themselves and others safe online.
Our aim is to provide a computing curriculum that is designed to balance acquiring a broad and deep knowledge alongside opportunities to apply skills in various digital contexts. Beyond teaching computing discreetly, we will give pupils the opportunity to apply and develop what they have learnt across wider learning in the curriculum.
E-Safety At Springhead Park
At Springhead Park Primary School we acknowledge that the use of electronic devices and the internet not only enriches the education of children and young people, but is highly motivating for recreational and social purposes. As a result we work with all of our children and young people around E-Safety and the dangers that they may encounter online. As a school we are committed to ensuring that we are up to date with all developing E-Safety issues.
We are currently following Project Evolve which meets each of the 330 statements from UK Council for Internet Safety's (UKCIS) framework “Education for a Connected World” with perspectives; research; activities; outcomes; supporting resources and professional development materials.
