At Trannack Primary School we want our pupils to be MASTERS of technology and not slaves to it.
We want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our pupils to be creators not consumers and our broad curriculum, encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this. We want our pupils to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we utilise technology to model positive use.
Our knowledge rich curriculum is balanced with the opportunity for pupils to apply their knowledge creatively, which will in turn help our pupils become skilful computer scientists. We aim to embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. We want our pupils to be fluent with a range of tools to best express their understanding and hope that, by Upper Key Stage 2, children have the independence and confidence to choose the best tool to fulfil the task and challenge set by teachers.
In order to successfully deliver an interesting, engaging, practical and knowledge rich Computing programme, we follow the Knowsley City Learning Centres scheme of work, and children will usually receive one computing lesson per week.
