Computing

Intent

At Meriden CE Primary School we want pupils to be masters of technology and not slaves to it; to embrace new ideas with curiosity, resilience and with sound judgment. We want our pupils to be creators not consumers where our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this.

We look for opportunities to embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible, recognising that that technology can allow pupils to share their learning in creative ways. Our knowledge rich curriculum has to be balanced with the opportunity for pupils to apply their knowledge creatively. We endeavour to provide experiences that help to raise aspirations and fully prepare pupils for life beyond Meriden.

We want our pupils to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we utilise technology to model positive use. We want our children to become responsible and safe users of technology in their role as active participants in a digital world.
