At St Lawrence C of E Primary School, we want computing to be creative, explorative, and engaging. Technology has become an important part of children`s lives, enabling them to undertake research, talk to their friends and family and access information from around the world in a variety of ways. New technology and communications are exciting; they are also rapidly changing and becoming increasingly more sophisticated. Computing online safety is an important subject area to enable children to move into a more digital world safely and with the relevant knowledge. Our computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety to ensure that children become confident in using and understanding a variety of digital devices, software and apps and how to use them safely. Units of the computing curriculum are revisited to ensure progression and to embed skills, learning and a love for computing.
