At Greenmeadow primary school, we believe that confidence in Computing prepares the children for whatever technologies they will use in the future, as well as developing the deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology. Technology is all around us in our day to day lives and because of this, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing ensures that our pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
We understand that in an ever-changing, digital world, e-safety is essential for all. As a school we are supported by the 'Switched On Online Safety' Scheme of work to ensure coverage of different areas of online safety as well as progression through the year groups.
