By the time the children leave Crossley Fields, they will have become highly motivated and engaged learners. They will be independent and resourceful in their learning, with twenty first century skills to learn lifelong.
Technology will be an empowering aspect of their learning and lives, in and out of school.
Key approaches we will use to develop this are:
- Ensuring all children know how to keep safe when using technology
- Highly effective communication in all media across school and the wider community
- Wide opportunities to research using diverse networks and sources
- Pupils exercising their creativity across the curriculum through opportunities to publish, present and perform to a wide range of audiences and for a wide range of challenging purposes
- The development of a comprehensive set of technological competences throughout the curriculum.
These approaches will be delivered through a curriculum which is relevant to themselves, to other children, to the rest of the world and to the requirements of all the Programmes of Study.
Key themes in the development of Computing and Learning Technology will be to:
- Enable the children to publish and present to wider audiences
- Radically increase communications across the school and outside
- Widen research networks
- Develop the Computing Programme of Study
- Ensure that the full range of pupil competences is exploited by all teachers to enhance, accelerate and thus transform learning
- Accelerate and raise achievement.
E-Safety – Information and Guidance
E-safety is a term which means not only the internet but other ways in which young people communicate using electronic media. It means ensuring that children and young people are protected from harm and supported to achieve the maximum benefit from new and developing technologies without risk to themselves or others.
We take e-safety very seriously at Crossley Fields! It is essential that everyone knows how to stay safe on-line and when using technology. You can investigate e-safety by clicking the links below.
