Computing

At Watchlytes, we recognise that technology plays a huge part in modern life and will only become more integral as our children grow up. We appreciate that our children’s access to technology outside of school varies widely and we therefore aim to equip every child to confidently use all forms of technology as well as developing a solid understanding of how computers work. Furthermore, we aim to develop children’s perception of technology as a tool for learning, innovation and discovery. Our curriculum aims to embed technology throughout all subjects and allow every pupil hands-on experience of a variety of hardware and software. Children have the opportunity to use technology to enhance their learning in all subjects as well as learn Computer Science discreetly. Ultimately, children should leave Watchlytes as confident, able and responsible Digital Citizens.

At Watchlytes, we have adapted the ‘Switched On Computing’ scheme of work, as recommended by National Association of Advisors for Computers in Education (NAACE).
