Computing

 

The primary aim of Radstock Primary School is to provide children with the skills and knowledge to become digitally literate, equipping them with the tools needed for the future workplace as well as encouraging them to become active participants in an ever evolving digital world. E-safety, or internet safety, will be taught to help pupils navigate the online world safely and confidently, regardless of the device, platform or app they are using. Through a whole school teaching approach, this will create a culture that incorporates the principles of online safety across all elements of school life, ensuring that knowledge and behaviours surrounding online safety are embedded.

 

At the heart of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils will be equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.

 

Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. These links will be explored by children to ensure that when they leave Radstock Primary School, they are responsible, digitally literate, happy citizens.
