At Lawley Primary School, we aim to prepare our children for a rapidly changing technological world. We model and educate pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely through our computing lessons which meet the National Curriculum guidelines and through our wider curriculum. We aim for our students to become creators as well as consumers in the technological world, forming close bonds with science, mathematics and design and technology within our curriculum. Through the use of Purple Mash, our curriculum encompasses computer science, information technology and digital literacy. Our knowledge rich curriculum is balanced with the opportunity for pupils to apply their knowledge creatively and develop their skills. Pupils have opportunities for physical computing using Lego Wedo 2.
We greatly value the use of technology in a safe and respectful manner. We educate both our children and our community on online safety, safe use of technology and social media as we recognise that this is the best way to prevent misuse. Our children will understand the consequences of using the internet with awareness of how to keep themselves safe online but still keep a buzz for the use of technology with the understanding of the huge positive impact it can make to people’s lives.
