At Dunton Green we inspire our children through a meaningful computing curriculum by enabling them to safely explore the digital world, be determined problem solvers and creators, and engage with familiar and unfamiliar technologies across a range of platforms.
At Dunton Green, we enable children to explore, exchange and present information using a range of media. Within the Computing Curriculum, children use coding, programming and debugging skills to present data, create animated stories, understand how to navigate databases and upload relevant and engaging content for different audiences.
Children are explicitly taught, using materials from ChildNet and CEOP, how to stay safe online. They are encouraged to think critically about the information they leave behind and are shown how to use search engines appropriately and securely. They are also taught the importance of maintaining a healthy balance of screen time with other parts of their lives. Assemblies also reinforce how children can keep themselves safe online.
Although computing is taught through discrete lessons which ensures clear progression across the school, children are encouraged to apply their skills across the curriculum. Children are supported to use a range of technologies to follow instructions, solve problems and create user-friendly content such as games and quizzes.
