At Sunny Bank we recognise that our pupils are living in a rapidly changing world in which computing, IT and digital literacy are playing an ever-increasing role. The use of computers and computer systems is an integral part of the National Curriculum and knowing how they work is a key life skill. In an increasingly digital world there now exists a wealth of software, tools and technologies that can be used to communicate, collaborate, express ideas and create digital content. We recognise that pupils are entitled to a broad and balanced computing education with a structured, progressive, approach to the learning how computer systems work, the use of IT and the skills necessary to become digitally literate, further their learning and assist them in everyday life. We believe that increased IT and computing skills promote independent learning and gives greater access to a wide range of ideas and experiences
Through our computing curriculum, we ensure that our learners are digitally literate, confident and can use technology safely.
We enjoy computing through lots of practical investigations, progressing across the Key Stages.
Lessons build upon skills that are developed in the following areas; computing systems and networks, multimedia, data and information, programming and coding and online safety.
Children and teachers are encouraged to use ICT in all areas of the curriculum to further enhance learning in a range of subjects.
