The use of technology is an integral part of our curriculum and provides pupils with the technological and communication skills they will need to live in our modern world. At William Reynolds Primary School we use computing skills across all curriculum areas. This involves using the internet to look at sources of information. This is done in as safe a way as possible, using search engines that are appropriate for children and under adult supervision. Part of our Computing curriculum is Digital Literacy and this strand focusses on E-Awareness providing pupils with the knowledge of how to keep safe when using the internet.
Our Computing Policy combines Computer Science and Information Technology allowing pupils to become digitally literate. We recognise the value of using technology to enhance the curriculum but also realise that pupils need to have a sound awareness of how to keep safe.
“We believe that we make a difference by creating a safe, healthy and stimulating environment of quality provision where our children feel and know how to keep themselves safe, happy and supported in their learning in school and in the wider community.” (Whole School Vision Statement)
To develop lifelong transferable skills through promoting curiosity, confidence and creativity whilst inspiring challenge.
