At Carlisle Infant School, we aim to prepare our children to be ‘lifelong learners’ with the confidence and ability to develop their skills and understanding when meeting new challenges. As computing is an increasing part of life today, it is essential that all pupils gain the confidence and ability that they need in this subject, to prepare them for the challenge of a rapidly developing and changing technological world. The use of computing will enhance and extend children’s learning across the whole curriculum whilst developing motivation and social skills. We teach our learners to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. We empower them to be active participants in our digital world. We equip them to be digital citizens, digital creators, digital communicators and digital investigators.
Our vision is that the use of these technologies will enrich the experience of all pupils and that these resources will help to provide an environment where opportunities can be explored in safety and with confidence. Online safety is explained to our children in the context of their general safety. Our children see the relevance of Internet safety, and it forms a vital and regular part of our teaching.
As part of our vision, we will ensure teachers have the necessary training to deliver an up to date curriculum. We will endeavour to keep pace with educational developments in computing and have a commitment to teachers having the necessary tools to do their jobs effectively. We strive to ensure we have access to and embrace effective and emerging technologies.
