All pupils at Streatham Wells Primary School have the right to have rich, deep learning experiences that balance all the aspects of computing. With technology playing such a significant role in society today, we believe ‘Computational Thinking’ is a skill children must be taught if they are able to participate effectively and safely in this digital world. A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems.
At Streatham Wells Primary School, the core of computing is Computing Science in which pupils are introduced to a wide range of technology, including laptops, iPads, chromebooks and interactive whiteboards alongside a range of digital devices, allowing them to continually practise and improve the skills they learn. This ensures they become digitally literate so that they are able to express themselves and develop their ideas through information and computer technology- at a level suitable for the future workplace as active participates in a digital world.
We are passionate about promoting high standards of computing and ICT. Our intent is that children should master Computing to such an extent that they can go on to have careers within Computing and make use of Computing and ICT effectively in their everyday lives, without being completely reliant on technology.
We have a broad and balanced Computing and ICT curriculum that builds on previous learning and provides both support and challenge for learners. It allows our children to acquire the vital knowledge and skills required for the next stage of their learning journey and for adulthood. These enable the children of Streatham Wells Primary School to become successful, active and positive members of their local community and wider world.
