At Buckton Fields, we strive for all our children to have fluency and understanding on a range of systems, and how they can be utilised in our rapidly shifting digital age. Our computing curriculum provides pupils with a high-quality computing education that equips them with the skills and knowledge in computational thinking, and the creativity to understand and cope with the technological changing world.
We seek to ensure that children are aware that, whilst computing offers a range of incredible and exciting ways to do things, that they are also aware of the dangers; therefore online safety is an integral part of our computing curriculum to ensure that our pupils are well equipped with he skills needed to remain safe online.
The computing curriculum at Buckton Fields is designed to develop children’s knowledge, understand and application of computing skills.
These are segmented into 4 key areas:
Through the curriculum, our children build breadth of knowledge and understanding of computing and safety so they are able to leave Preston Hedge’s as competent IT users so they are successfully able to interact with the world around them, and draw upon the many benefits that IT can bring to our every day and working lives for the future.
More than this, we also seek to engage the children with new, emerging and exciting technology and topics. Our children create video games, become music and film producers, and use VR Headsets to travel the world. This ensures that our children are not just competent – they are excited, forward thinking users of technology.
