Information Technology We want our children to have a high-quality computing education and become creators of digital technologies and computing knowledge. The Computing curriculum at Bowbrook will include Programming, Creativity (beyond computing) and Applying ICT in Society & E-safety. Programming– There are many games and apps that children are familiar with at home that allow them to develop their Programming skills at a very early age. At School, we will build on these skills by learning to create algorithms where they create a sequence of instructions to make ‘something happen’. In Creativity, pupils will interact with age-appropriate computer software for particular purposes. In Key Stage One, they learn basic skills of creating, organising, storing, manipulating and retrieving digital content. When Applying ICT in Society, all pupils will learn to use technology safely, respectfully and responsibly and identify where to go for support when they have concerns about the internet/other online technologies. E-safety is an essential thread of the computing curriculum. Pupils are taught how to navigate content safely and make sure they have the confidence and awareness to raise anything they’re not sure about. Our children will have access to the latest equipment to enable pupils to achieve in Computing and appreciate technology in the real world. Children will have immediate access to a combination of digital devices to provide instant, and endless possibilities between pupils and technology.
