Our vision for ICT/Computing at Parklands

We aim for all pupils to become confident and creative users of information and communication technology. Pupils will follow a scheme of work, building on their individual skills and abilities, to develop in six key areas to become competent;

  • Logical thinkers
  • Problem Solvers
  • Programmers
  • Content Creators
  • Communicators
  • Researchers

Our pupils will develop an understanding of how ICT is utilised in the modern world and experience coding and debugging programs. They will also have opportunity to use a range of devices and software to support learning across the curriculum. E-safety will have continuous emphasis throughout each module, empowering our pupils to use technology in a safe, respectful and responsible manner. Pupils with specific skills and interests will be engaged to develop further via our Digital Leader scheme.

Our key objective is for all pupils to become digitally literate; enabling them to use ICT safely and proficiently to support their future learning.

The national curriculum for computing aims to ensure that all pupils:​

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
