At Bridekirk Dovenby School, we strive to make our pupils independent, confident users of technology, actively engaged in learning. We aim to model the use of technology that reflects our school values, staying safe, being responsible and being respectful of others online. Our main aim it to equip our pupils with skills to ensure they can use technology to the best of their abilities, promoting resilience, independence, communication skills and critical thinking and problem solving through debugging and programming. Our teaching program for 2021-2022 has been designed to include ‘catch-up’ units to cover for extended periods of home learning over the last two years. We have designed a broad curriculum with a structured and progressive sequence with the National Curriculum used as a starting point.
It allows our pupils to be inquisitive and creative, also working well as a team with a sense of community when doing group work and group presentations. We aspire for children to leave computing lessons with a sense of pride in their work and able to discuss their new learning and progress at home.
