Computing Vision

At Parkhill Junior, our vision is to ensure an imaginative and stimulating Computing curriculum which is skilfully designed to meet the full range of pupils’ needs and develop their talents and abilities (Article 29). We believe that computational thinking is crucial in helping children to solve problems, design systems, and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence. Pupils who can think computationally are better able to conceptualise, understand and use computer-based technology, and so are better prepared for today’s world and future. We aim to ensure that our children are competent, confident creators of technology, not merely users.

The key message this year for staying safe online is: Consent

What is consent?
Consent is another word for permission.  When we are online, we need to ask for permission for some things and give permission for others.  Examples might be your location online or inviting new friends to social media groups.

Remember stay safe online and enjoy learning!
