Computing

At Haslemere Primary School we believe that computational thinking is vital in helping children to solve problems, design systems, and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence. We believe it is a skill that empowers, and one that all pupils should be aware of and develop competence in.  Pupils who can think computationally are better able to create, understand and use computer-based technology, and so are better prepared for today’s world and future.

Our Aims

  • Children will understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
  • Children will be able to evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
  • Pupils will be equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content.
  • We aim to ensure that children are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
  • Children will become independent and skilful users of digital technology and will be outward looking and forward thinking in this technological age.
  • To equip all learners with the experiences and skills of computing that they will use in a rapidly changing technological world and to engage children through enriched multi-media learning experiences.
  • We aim to ensure that teachers develop confidence and competence to use digital technology in the effective teaching of their subject.
  • Children will become digitally literate. They will be able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology, at a level suitable for future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

Children at Haslemere are encouraged to foster a positive ‘can-do’ attitude when tackling new challenges and so they aspire for success and aim for excellence.

At Haslemere, over 2019-20 we are moving towards using Google Classroom, so digital content is more accessible across the curriculum.
