Why do we teach computing at St Clare's?


The use of information and communication technology is an integral part of the national curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Computers, tablets, iPads, programmable toys and digital cameras are a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. At St. Clare’s Primary School, we recognise that pupils are entitled to quality hardware and software and a structured and progressive approach to the learning of the skills needed to enable them to use ICT effectively.

At St Clare's we aim to:

  • Provide a relevant, challenging and enjoyable Computing curriculum for all pupils.
  • Meet the requirements of the national curriculum programmes of study for computing.
  • Use computing as a tool to enhance learning throughout the curriculum.
  • Respond to new developments in technology.
  • Equip pupils with the confidence and capability to use computing throughout their later life.
  • Enhance learning in other areas of the curriculum using computing.
  • Develop the understanding of how to use computing equipment safely and responsibly.
