Happy Children, Happy School; Achieving Excellence in Education.

Computing

Lavendon School values the fundamental part that technology plays in the life of the school.

 

A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information technology.

 

We believe that technology can provide: enhanced collaborative learning opportunities; better engagement of pupils; easier access to rich content; support conceptual understanding of new concepts and can support the needs of all our pupils.

 

We will strive to keep children safe on line and provide them with the knowledge and tools to do so. We will also empower parents, carers and the wider community with up to date information regarding keeping children safe online.

 

We will use IT and computing to empower staff to work more efficiently, creatively and effectively to improve their teaching and the assessing of the pupils in their class. IT will be an integral communication tool within the school and to the wider community
