Our Computing Vision
We live in a world where technology and computing are not only forever changing, but play an ever-increasing role in everyday life. So much so that primary aged children now arrive at school having never known a life without technology. At Holy Family School, we aim to equip every child with the skills and knowledge they require to be competent computational thinkers and users.
We recognise computing is a diverse and cross curricular subject and so place computer science at the heart of our computing lessons. Children learn about programming, digital systems and the wider principles of computation, as well as how these relate to broader learning and everyday life. Computing enables us to connect with the wider community and we aim to ensure that the children, parents and staff at Holy Family know how to do this in a safe and secure manner.
As a school, we are committed to making sure that we have up to date technology, and try to encourage children to develop their skills and subject knowledge through the use of technology, where appropriate.
Safer Internet Day 2019 will take place on Tuesday 5th February with the theme ‘Together for a better internet'.
Coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre the celebration sees hundreds of schools and organisations join together to raise awareness of online safety issues and run events and activities right across the UK.
