Our Computing Intent
The computing curriculum at Two Mile Ash aims to give all children the opportunity to build skills that will support them in the future. They will be able to embrace and utilise technology effectively and safely in order to develop their learning within the subject. We want pupils to be able to develop life skills that give them the opportunity to adapt their knowledge to everyday life, where technology is integrated into the world around them. Children will become more autonomous and confident learners with their use of technology through the implementation of a whole school curriculum offer allowing them to access more devices and aspects of technology that is embedded in an interdisciplinary way. We encourage our staff to adapt their lessons to meet the needs of their children, accordingly, allowing all children to be included and successful learners.
An integral part of computing at TMA is being able to stay safe online, equipping our children with the knowledge they need to make the best use of the internet and technology in a safe, considered and respectful way, so they are able to reap the benefits of the online world.
Computing at Two Mile Ash is not only taught as a stand-alone lesson but presents the opportunity to enrich other subjects across the curriculum, giving them the tools to best express their understanding of their learning. This ensures that our children become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves through communication technology as active participants in a digital world.
