At Whoberley Hall we teach a discrete sequence of lessons which are planned to build on skills in order to reach end of Key Stage National Curriculum outcomes.
We understand the key role technology has in society and we intend for pupils to not only be digital competent and have a range of transferable skills at a suitable level for their future endeavours, but also to be responsible online citizens.
Beginning right from the Early Years, all children will develop a clear understanding of the role of different technologies within our everyday lives. They will understand how to keep themselves and others safe when using technology and how to report inappropriate content.
In order to prepare them for later life they will understand the importance of keeping private information private and safe ways to communicate. Our children will learn to use a range of software to present their work from Key Stage 1 and move on to collecting, analysing and presenting data and information. Children will also build an understanding of how technology works as they learn to code. They will understand, use and write their own algorithms to achieve set outcomes and learn to debug mistakes as they arise.
Skills which are taught during discrete lessons are also applied within other curriculum areas to ensure regular revisiting.
