Jersey has adapted England's 2014 National Computing Curriculum to meet the needs of our students. The Jersey Computing Curriculum has been divided into three strands:
The new Computing Curriculum is very exciting and aims to ensure that all children:
Can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science
Can analyse problems in computational terms and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programmes in order to solve such problem
Can evaluate and apply information technology analytically to solve problems
Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
All classrooms across the school are equipped with interactive whiteboard technology, for use as a learning tool by both teachers and children. iPads are also being used to enhance learning and our iPads are managed by our ‘Digital Leaders’, a team of children who organise and advise on iPad use.
We take online safety very seriously and have an ongoing programme of ‘Digital Citizenship’ education to support children in being safe and responsible users of technology. Please refer to our E-Safety page for more information.
Permission is sought from parents before children can access the internet in school. Parent Consent forms are in the starter packs, or obtained from the School Office.
