At Renhold VC Primary we believe that students deserve a broad, diverse, and creative computing curriculum, rich in skills and knowledge that balances all aspects of computing. We provide an exciting, rich, relevant and challenging Computing curriculum for all pupils which enthuses and equips them with the capabilities to use technology throughout their lives. Through the use of Purple Mash, we teach pupils to become responsible, respectful and competent users of information and communication technology. Pupils are equipped with the skills, strategies and knowledge that will enable them to reap the benefits of the online world, whilst being able to minimise the risk to themselves and others.
The use of technology is ever evolving and fundamental to living and working in the 21st century. Hence it is vital that pupils develop a high level of digital literacy, skills and inquisitiveness to empower them to become life-long learners, taking responsibility for their own learning.
Computing has deep cross-curricular links in subject areas such as mathematics, science and design and technology. Through the use of Purple Mash and other digital platforms such as TT Rockstars we are able to utilise these cross-curricular links flexibly and effectively.
