At Benedict House we see computing as an integral part of learning and life. We want our children to become digital natives and have the confidence to embrace the ever-changing technology of the modern world. We want to instil good computing habits and ‘netiquette’, as well as empower our children to stay safe in the virtual world.
At Benedict House, you will not see computing limited to a weekly lesson. Teachers make use of technology in all lessons; for example, through the use of interactive boards, laptops and iPads. Computing extends into other areas of the curriculum, with technology embedded into many English, Maths and Humanities lessons.
Our computing curriculum, while rooted in a topic-based approach, gives children from Year One upwards exposure to and experiences in the exciting world of computer programming. In addition, we aim to equip children with the knowledge and understanding to keep themselves safe online, and to be responsible and respectful digital citizens.
