At Marshland Primary Academy we want children to be confident users of technology. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in our children’s lives,. Therefore, we want to model and educate them on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our children to be creators not consumers and our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this.
At Marshland Primary Academy, we recognise that the best prevention for a lot of issues we currently see with technology/social media is through education. We know that technology can allow pupils to share their learning in creative ways. Our knowledge rich curriculum has to be balanced with the opportunity for children to apply their knowledge creatively which will in turn help our children become skilful computer scientists.
We encourage staff to try and embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. We want our children to be fluent with a range of tools to best express their understanding and hope by the time they leave us, the children have the independence and confidence to choose the best tool to fulfil any task and challenge.
