At Broomwood Primary School we recognise that computing changes the lives of everyone. Through teaching the skills of computing we equip children with the skills required to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. We enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information as well as using computing skills to programme or use equipment for a range of activities. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way, validating it before accepting its accuracy. Children also learn how to stay safe whilst using the internet and how the use of computing can help them become creative, independent learners, by taking the laborious routine out of some text and information tasks.
