At Botwell House Catholic Primary School, we want pupils to be MASTERS of technology in order to fully prepare them for the wider global community. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in students' lives. Therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our children to become responsible digital leaders and our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this.
We want our pupils to understand when using technology, we should only ever use it in a positive way. We want pupils to recognise that technology can allow pupils to share their learning in creative ways and to understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide for our pupils. Our knowledge rich curriculum has to be balanced with the opportunity for pupils to apply their knowledge creatively which will in turn help our pupils become skilful computer scientists.
We aim to embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. We want our pupils to be fluent with a range of tools to best express their understanding and hope by Upper Key Stage 2, children have the independence and confidence to choose the best tool to fulfil the task and challenge set by teachers. Children will be limitless in what they can achieve in life with these skills.
