Intent – Computing at Hindhayes
Recent research used to inform practice: National Centre for Computing training, Somerset ElLiM
Developing computer literate pupils at Hindhayes:
It is our intention to enable children to develop their digital literacy. We want children to know more, remember more and understand more in computing so that they leave Hindhayes ready for the next stage of their computing education. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this. We intend to develop a computing curriculum that provides as many cross curricula opportunities as possible this will enable pupils to improve, develop and embed the computing skills and knowledge taught through focussed computing lessons. We intend to build a computing curriculum that prepares pupils to live safely in an increasingly digital British society where pupils can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
