At Milecastle, we believe that computing is an essential part of the curriculum. It is a subject that not only stands alone but is woven through the curriculum and should be an integral part of all learning.  Computing plays a significant part in everyone’s daily life and children should be at the forefront of new technology and given the confidence to use it. It is our intention to provide every possible opportunity to allow our children to become independent, resilient and responsible digital citizens. We strive to give the children the knowledge they need to make their own good decisions and take responsibility for their actions in an increasingly digital world.

We recognise that technology can allow pupils to celebrate their learning in creative ways such as blogging, digital display boards and Seesaw. We teach children to celebrate their own and each other’s work and how to respond respectfully and with kindness. We also understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide for our pupils and our curriculum includes opportunities for children to work both collaboratively and independently on tasks and challenges. 

We encourage staff to try and embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. We want our pupils to be fluent with a range of tools to best express their understanding and hope by Upper Key Stage 2, children have the independence and confidence to independently use technology in exciting and innovative ways.
