Right now, we live in a digital world where technology is at the forefront of everyday life. We use technology fromringing the doorbells of our house to paying for goods by a tap of our phones. At King David, our vision is to equip the children with the skills they will need growing up in such a technological world. We recognise that as a school we have a responsibility to prepare the pupils for their future in a rapidly developing and changing technological world. By increasing their knowledge and understanding of the impact technology has on our day to day life, we are preparing them for a future in a world of technological unknowns.
Our computing curriculum allows children to use computational thinking to support their social development and understanding of the wider world around them. At the core of our computing curriculum 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. Through weekly computing lessons children are taught to be digitally literate; able to use and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology within a variety of contexts and subjects. Each child will be able to access the Internet and use the World Wide Web in a safe and respectful way. They will understand the necessary precautions to take, to stay safe and know where to seek help. No child will feel threatened or unsafe whilst online at school or at home. We aspire to be able to provide children with the latest technological advances to keep their knowledge constantly thriving and growing.
