At Urmston Primary School, we have a vision for a Computing curriculum that will equip children with the skills and knowledge they need to use technology safely and creatively. We want to create a Computing curriculum that encourages solving complex problems, being able to collaborate with others and learn from mistakes and that builds resilience in all our learners. We want children to become independent and to have fun with technology while developing 21st-century skills.
This policy reflects the school values and philosophy in relation to the teaching and learning of and with ICT and Computing. It sets out a framework within which teaching and non-teaching staff can operate and gives guidance on planning, teaching and assessment.
The policy should be read in conjunction with the MGL scheme of work for Computing, the curriculum that UPS chooses to follow, which sets out in detail what pupils in different classes and year groups will be taught and how ICT can facilitate or enhance work in other curriculum areas. E-safety is embedded within this curriculum as well as being taught, and awareness enhanced, outside the MGL curriculum, as and when appropriate.
