Computing Intent Statement
Bottesford Junior School promotes that Computing will develop thinkers of the future through experiencing an ambitious and relevant education. It is our intent to equip pupils with the ability to use computational thinking and creativity that will enable them to become active participants in the digital world. It is important to us that the children understand how to use this ever-changing technology to express themselves, as tools for learning and as a means to drive their generation forward into the future in a safe and secure manner.
Alongside ensuring they understand the advantages and disadvantages associated with online experiences, we want children to develop as respectful, responsible and confident users of technology, aware of measures that can be taken to keep themselves and others safe online.
Our aim is to provide a computing curriculum that is designed to balance acquiring a broad and deep knowledge, alongside opportunities to apply skills in various digital contexts. Beyond teaching computing discreetly, we want to ensure that children at Bottesford Junior School are given the opportunity to apply and develop what they have learnt across wider learning in the curriculum, using computing to not just replace more commonly known methods within daily lessons but to enhance that understanding and consequently the quality of learning taking place.
Our whole school Computing Lead is Mr Snowden
