At Canon Pyon CE Academy, we intend to prepare our children to be confident and competent within a world that is heavily shaped by technology.
We recognise that our children, like many others, are using technology on a daily basis at home and at school therefore, within our curriculum, we aim to develop knowledge, understanding and confidence to ensure our children go through education and beyond being able to apply the computing skills they have learnt in everyday situations.
We intend for our children to develop their speaking and listening skills, within the computing curriculum, by using a range of different software where children of all ages can find, analyse and present information and further evaluate their presentations.
We aim to develop independent learners who are fluent in their understanding of computer science by teaching them how to use a range of programs where they are able to design, create and evaluate their work using specific vocabulary.
We ensure our children are taught the importance of safe internet use during computing lessons but also in our bespoke S.M.S.C curriculum. In every year group, e-safety is a key focus and we are proud that a vast majority of our children have the knowledge and understanding of how to stay safe online. We promote the importance of using technology safely and respectfully by ensuring all of our children have access to our key stage specific safe internet use posters, which are clearly displayed in every classroom.
Our ambition, for our children, is for them to leave us developing their digital literacy and being able to safely use technology and develop their ideas through information and communication technology, which they will be able to apply to their further education and future career to become masters of technology in the rapidly changing digital world.
