Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in children’s lives, therefore, at Tyldesley Primary School, we want to model and educate our children on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our children to be creators not consumers and our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this. We want our children to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we utilise technology (especially social media) to model positive use. Building our knowledge in this subject will allow pupils to effectively demonstrate their learning through creative use of technology.
We recognise that technology can allow children to share their learning in creative ways. We also understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide for our children. Our knowledge rich curriculum is balanced with the opportunity for them to apply their knowledge creatively, which will in turn help our children become skillful computer scientists.
We encourage staff to embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. We want our children to be fluent with a range of tools to best express their understanding.
