At Spring Vale Primary School we believe that computing should permeate the curriculum, allowing our children to learn how they want, when they want and where they want. We believe that computing should be a tool for learning. Effective computing, coupled with well trained, competent and enthusiastic staff, allows our children to develop the necessary computing skills needed for lifelong learning in the 21st Century.
Computing comprises of three strands, which will be delivered to ensure a balanced curriculum:
Computer science - the study of the foundational principles and practices of computation and computational thinking, and their application in the design and development of computer systems
IT - the creative and productive use and application of computer systems, hardware and software
Digital Literacy - the ability of learners to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology with regard to safeguarding and online etiquette.
