Computing at St Maria Goretti
At St Maria Goretti we understand that computers are part of everyday life for our children. We recognise the importance of providing opportunities to use computer systems across the curriculum. A vital part of our teaching includes supporting our children to access computers and the internet safely and responsibly - further information about this can be found on ourE-Safety page.
The three aspects of the Computing curriculum:
Pupils are taught about how computing systems work and how to use this knowledge through programming. Children gain practical experience of writing and debugging algorithms and develop an understanding of computer networks and the World Wide Web.
Pupils are taught how to use computer systems to create, organise and store digital content. Children are provided with opportunities to use search technologies safely and effectively and experience using a range of software and digital devices.
Pupils are taught about how computing systems are used beyond school and learn the importance of being a responsible 'digital citizen.' Through our E-Safety programme children learn where to go for help when they have concerns about content or contact online.
