We are preparing children for jobs that have not yet been invented, in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.

Vision
In this technological age where computers are an integral aspect of our modern lives our main aim is to ensure that children are safe users of technology. At Village Primary we want to raise safe and healthy children who are mindful, active producers of technology not mindless consumers. Children need to know how to navigate the online world safely, maturely and sensitively; ensuring they use their critical, ‘computational thinking’ skills when presented with a range of views and information that will enable them to participate effectively and safely in a digital world. Class teachers will make topical and contextual links to Global Goals as and when appropriate.

Computing is fun, helps us learn more and gives us a better education. Year 5

Technology is rapidly changing at an inordinate and incomprehensible speed. As the famous quote from Richard Riley (former US Secretary of Education) says “We are preparing children for jobs that have not yet been invented, in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.” We recognise that as a school we have a responsibility to prepare the pupils for this uncertain future by improving their knowledge of and understanding how imperative technology is as an aid to learning and the real world beyond.

Computing is great. I like making my own scratch characters. It will help me get a job. Year 3

We aim to ensure that children are active, resilient users of technology and teachers use ‘unplugged’ activities to ensure children have a deeper concrete understanding of the curriculum before moving onto the abstract. Where possible technology is used to enhance areas of the curriculum but staff and children are aware of ensuring technology is not just used for the sake of it and has a real purpose and enrichment. Creative and imaginative cross curricular teaching aims to give children the flexibility to explore, dream and discover in real life and purposeful contexts. Through the study of computing, children are able to develop a wide range of essential skills, knowledge and understanding that they will need for the rest of their lives.

I want to be a game designer so it will help me with my future. Year 6
