Growing as a KSJ digital citizen

Preparing for life in a modern world, and ensurign our children have the skills they need for the next stage of their education are at the heart of our computing curriculum.

For our digital citizens, we encourage enthusiasm, curiousity, independence in thinking, Motivation,  reflection, resilience, tolerance and responsiblity.

Computers are now part of everyday life. We are very fortunate to have been supported by our wonderful community to set up. a class set of ipads and a class set of surface pros.  Having this support allows us to keep up with the pace of technological developments and demands of the curriculum.

For most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work.

‘Computational thinking’ is a skill children must be taught if they are to be ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively in this digital world. The new national curriculum for computing has been developed to equip young people in England with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Through the new programme of study for computing, they will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content. 


Computing is concerned with how computers and computer systems work, and how they are designed and programmed. Pupils studying computing will gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers. Computational thinking provides insights into many areas of the curriculum, and influences work at the cutting edge of a wide range of disciplines. Why is computational thinking so important? It allows us to solve problems, design systems, and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence. It is a skill that empowers, and one that all pupils should be aware of and develop competence in. Pupils who can think computationally are better able to conceptualise, understand and use computer-based technology, and so are better prepared for today’s world and the future. Computing is a practical subject, in which invention and resourcefulness are encouraged. The ideas of computing are applied to understanding real-world systems and creating purposeful products. This combination of principles, practice and invention makes computing an extraordinarily useful and intensely creative subject, suffused with excitement, both visceral (‘it works!’) and intellectual (‘that is so beautiful’).


Supporting our vision to 'Believe in the light whilst you have the light so that you become children of light -

Our E-Buddies support and lead other children in our school to promote appropriate use of our technology and care for the expensive technology in school.
