At lugwardine Primary Academy it is our intention to recognise the importance of technology in every aspect of daily life. For most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work. ‘Computational Thinking’ is a key skill that children must learn well if they are to be ready for the workplace and able to participate effectively in this digital world. At the core of our curriculum is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of coding, how digital systems work, and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, we intend for our children to use information technology to create programs and systems for a range of contexts. We aim to ensure that pupils become digitally literate to express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology, in order for them to be active participants in a digital world.
