At Smithdown Primary, we believe the use of information and communication technology is an integral part of the National Curriculum, a key skill for everyday life and vital for a successful future for our children. Computers, tablets, programmable robots, digital and video cameras are a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. In an evolving world where technology is at the heart, we aim to develop enthusiasm in computational thinking and confidence in using the latest technologies for a range of purposes.

At Smithdown, it is paramount that children are confident users of technology, including the internet, whilst exploring it safely. As a school, we have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of our children which includes online safety.

Due to the cohort of children at Smithdown, we intend to shape our Computing curriculum to the children’s skills at the time which will differ from year to year. Thus, our teachers have the ownership to explore skills that may not have been embedded prior to their own year group.
