“We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher’s hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.” – David Warlick
Computing at Misterton Primary and Nursery School intends to develop ‘thinkers of the future’ through a modern, ambitious and language rich curriculum. We want to equip pupils to use computational thinking and creativity that will enable them to become active, independent participants in the digital world. It is important to us that the children understand how to use the ever-changing technology to express themselves, as tools for learning and as a means to drive their generation forward into the future.
At Misterton Primary and Nursery School we ensure our children understand the advantages and disadvantages associated with online experiences. We want children to develop as respectful, responsible and confident users of technology, aware of measures that can be taken to keep themselves and others safe online.
Our aim is to provide a computing curriculum that is designed to balance acquiring a broad and deep knowledge alongside opportunities to apply skills in various digital contexts. Beyond teaching computing discreetly, we give pupils the opportunity to apply and develop what they have learnt across wider learning in the curriculum.
