“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” Charles Darwin
Computing Subject Leader is Mrs Sedour
Our curriculum intent for Computing is that every child will:
Holy Trinity is committed to ensuring all children have full access to a high-quality computing education. We have a range of excellent resources to support children in their learning across the whole curriculum as well as in their discrete computing lessons. The school makes good use of shared resources such as iPads, laptops and other technical resources which can be used within lessons or as part of group work.
Implementation of the Computing Curriculum at Holy Trinity
The Curriculum is largely focused around 3 key areas:
We aim to develop meaningful links across other curriculum subjects for pupils to be able to apply and practice their computing skills.
At Holy Trinity pupils and teachers use a variety of hardware such as iPads, laptops, Beebots, Micro Bits, digital microscopes etc.
The safe use of technology and the internet underpins our curriculum. We have a focus on Internet Safety in each year group. We use our website to provide staff and parents with up-to-date information about gaming and apps available. In our every-changing technological world, we aim to ensure all our pupils have the skills and knowledge to stay safe and behaviour appropriately on-line.
Pupils use Teams to upload assignments and access homework. Along with a variety of on-line platforms. Our Digital Leaders support other children with a variety of skills and share their expertise when needed.
The Impact of the Computing Curriculum at Holy Trinity
Holy Trinity pupils have experience of a range of software and developed their computing skills during their time with us. They are prepared for using Teams for blended learning at secondary school and have developed their independence to be able to access and upload assignments set.
In teaching our pupils how to behave appropriately on-line and how to report a problem, we have given them transferrable skills to prepare them for whatever future technology awaits them.
How does Computing fit into our School Vision?
We facilitate opportunities so every child can flourish in a place where they feel safe, happy and confident.
Staff wellbeing and professional development is valued and supported in order to fulfil their roles, inspire others and experience personal fulfilment.
The school provides facilities that enable an optimum learning environment.
The school plays a central role within our community and enjoys strong links with the church, local companies and other schools.
Computing is central to the curriculum and is integrated with a range of subjects. The school is well resourced with Interactive Whiteboards in all teaching rooms, which allows us to create visually stimulating lessons and greater opportunities for interactive learning. In addition, the school has a Research Hub with laptops and iPads for indoor and outdoor learning. Children are taught how to program and how to use other technology, access particular software and how to stay safe online. Our main learning tool is Purple Mash. All pupils have a login and password that can be used at home and at school.
