At Stepney Greencoat, we equip our children to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology.
We want to enable our pupils to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information, whilst also developing the skills necessary for them to be able to use information in an effective, safe and responsible way.
Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and problem solvers; and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this.
Across the years, in line with the national curriculum, we aim for pupils at Stepney Greencoat to:
- Become confident in using code, and to understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including logic, algorithms and data representation
- Analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
- Effectively communicate, evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, to solve problems
- Be responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
Computing – "Learning Together for Life"
We carefully plan, deliver and assess computing to allow each child to reach their full learning potential.
We work together with children and their families to ensure that all pupils have a strong understanding of how to stay safe online, as well as the responsibility they must take for their own digital footprint.
The ability to adapt to rapidly changing technology will be an essential skill that our children will need to possess as they continue through their education and into the workplace. Our computing curriculum encourages a creative approach to problem solving, leading to the children becoming resilient and creative users of technology. Through the teaching of computing safety, we equip all children with the skills and knowledge that is needed for them to become positive members of society who use technology safely and responsibly.
