With technology playing such a significant role in society today, at Cudham we believe ‘computational thinking’ is a skill children must be taught if they are to be ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively in this digital world.
The core of the new computing curriculum is computer science in which pupils are taught the principles of how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming.
Children at Cudham have regular access to a range of technology, including laptops, iPads and interactive whiteboards, allowing them to continually practice and improve the skills they learn. This ensures they become digitally literate – able to express themselves and develop their ideas through information and computer technology.
We offer a curriculum that enables children to become effective users of technology and teach them to:
• Understand and apply the essential principles and concepts of computer science, including logic, algorithms and data representation.
• Evaluate and apply information technology analytically to solve problems.
• Communicate ideas well by utilising appliances and devices throughout all areas of the curriculum.
At Cudham we take internet safety extremely seriously. Every year group participates in lessons on e-safety and children are taught how to stay safe when using technology.
