Through our Computing curriculum at Heatherside Infant School we aim to give our pupils life skills and develop transferable skills that will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way. Not only do we want them to be digitally literate and competent users of technology through our computing lessons, we also want them to develop creativity, resilience, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. We want the use of technology to support learning across the entire curriculum and to ensure that our curriculum is accessible to every child, to best prepare them for the next stage of their education, and beyond.
