At Kirkby Woodhouse School, we believe computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners and it is our intention that our children have every opportunity available to allow them to achieve this.
We intend to build a computing curriculum that develops pupil’s learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge of the world around them.
Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in our students' lives. Therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively and safely.
We want our students to be confident and competent using a range of technology and our broad computing curriculum includes computer science, digital literacy and online safety. We attempt to embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible.
We recognise that technology can allow pupils to share their learning in creative ways.
At Kirkby Woodhouse School, children have access to class sets of iPads and ChromeBooks, as well as use of multiple online applications, software and platforms. This equips students with broad, transferable skills across a range of media.
