Technology is a very important aspect of our daily lives. Teachers at Fordcombe recognise that it is important in today’s world that pupils should have a good knowledge and understanding of technology and how it can be used. Our teaching aims to develop pupils’ skills in using hardware and software, to develop their ability to use technology to support their use of language and communication, and to increase pupils’ awareness of the advantages and limitations of different forms of technology.
Our aims at Fordcombe for Computing are:
Pupils in Key Stage 2 have access to MyMaths, software designed to support the acquisition of maths skills at home. All the pupils across the school also have access to PurpleMash, again, used to enhance the curriculum at school and beyond school.
Computing is constantly changing and, through review and analysis, we aim to keep our curriculum relevant and exciting for pupils.
