At Kidsgrove Primary School we recognise that computing is changing the lives of everyone. The use of computing is an integral part of the national curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Through teaching computing, we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. We enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating, safe and effective way. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners. At Kidsgrove Primary School, we recognise that pupils are entitled to quality hardware and software and a structured and progressive approach to the learning of the skills needed to enable them to use it effectively.
