At Wimboldsley Community Primary School, we aim to prepare our learners for their future by giving them the opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills that will equip them for an ever changing digital world. Knowledge and understanding of Computing is of increasing importance for children’s future both at home and for employment. Our Computing curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in digital literacy, computer science, information technology and online safety to ensure that children become competent in safely using, as well as understanding, technology. These strands are revisited repeatedly through a range of themes during children’s time in school to ensure the learning is embedded and skills are successfully developed. Our intention is that Computing also supports children’s creativity and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school.
I have been teaching at Wimboldsley Community Primary School for 4 years. I have enjoyed leading Computing over this time. I understand the important place of technology in the world and strive to create a curriculum that will provide children the skills and knowledge they need in an ever developing world. Throughout school, I always enjoyed my Computing learning and enjoyed sharing my knowledge and experience with my colleagues. With the support of MGL and PurpleMash, I have the opportunity to participate in regular CPD opportunities. I recognise the importance of being safe on the internet and will alway offer advice and support to colleagues and families who need it. I ensure that the children regularly receive e-safety learning and know what to do if anything upsets them or worries them when using technology.
