Computing in Holy Family School
Computing lead: Miss Lingwood
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. Children learn about programming, digital systems and the wider principles of computation, as well as how these relate to broader learning and everyday life. On top of this, we aim to use it in other lessons as a cross curricular tool. 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.
