Statement of Intent:
At Harrietsham Church of England Primary School, we understand that computers are an integral part of our lives – our schools, homes and places of work constantly involve computer systems, so it is vital that all of our children become confident in using the systems, start to understand how they work and are eager to explore the opportunities available to them; therefore, the lessons need to be fun and engaging, encouraging the children to investigate the capabilities of the technology. We aim to make our lessons accessible to everyone, so that everyone can develop their skills and flourish. Computing is a fantastic subject that inspires creativity and problem solving; tasks are designed to be fun and suitably challenging. We hope that children develop resilience and a positive mindset as they fix bugs and develop their work. They should also have the opportunities to effectively communicate their ideas and understanding during the lessons.
