Computing at Fircroft
At Fircroft, we offer a broad and balanced Computing curriculum, organised into four areas: Digital Literacy, Information Technology, Coding and Online Safety, which runs as a theme within each topic.
Online safety is an integral part of our Computing Curriculum as we recognise that we have a vital role to play in supporting children to stay safe whilst navigating the wide range of apps, websites and devices they may have access to.
We want our learners to be confident and creative users of a wide range of technologies, from iPads to PCs and laptops to microbits, and to have the opportunity to use them to enhance their learning, across the wider curriculum.
Pupils are encouraged to learn in small steps, often collaboratively, to develop the skills of lifelong learners who are adaptable and have transferable skills, which they can apply to the ever-changing technological landscape.
