Computing at Wellsprings
Computing at Wellsprings Primary School intends to develop ‘thinkers of the future’ through a modern, ambitious and relevant education in computing. We understand that we are developing digital skills, computational thinking and creativity that children will build upon throughout their lives for future roles in society, using technology that may not exist yet!
We want to equip pupils to use computational thinking and creativity that will enable them to become responsible and active participants in the digital world. It is important to us that the children understand how to use the ever-changing technology to express themselves, as tools for learning and as a means to drive their generation forward into the future.
We want to develop children as respectful and confident users of technology, whilst ensuring they understand the advantages and disadvantages associated with online experiences in order to keep themselves safe.
We have invested wisely into our computing curriculum and offer children experience of a range of devices such as:
- VTech cameras
- Data loggers
Our aim is to provide a computing curriculum that balances broad and deep knowledge alongside opportunities to apply skills in a variety of contexts across other curriculum areas.
