At Bilbrook Middle School, we believe that Computing is an essential part of the curriculum; a subject that is not only taught as a stand alone subject but is also woven into every other area of teaching and learning. In Computing, we intend to create enthusiastic and resilient digital citizens who are able to use technology in and out of the classroom effectively and safely. Through the study of Computing, our students will acquire a wide range of fundamental skills, knowledge and understanding that will equip them for the rest of their life. The programme of Computing at Bilbrook CE Middle follows the National Curriculum and our aim is for all children to develop a secure understanding of a wide range of transferable skills. This will enable them to make connections in and out of their Computing lessons.
Across both Key Stages, children have the opportunity to use a wide range of hardware and software that will allow them to code virtual and physical systems, solve problems, understand computer networks, use the internet efficiently and effectively, use technology safely and responsibly and produce work in a range of mediums such as video and photo. New learning is modelled by the teacher, retrieval is assessed at the start of every lesson and children have the opportunity to demonstrate their learning in context.
After the implementation of our robust Computing curriculum, children at Bilbrook CE Middle will be digitally literate, resilient and confident using technology effectively, but more importantly – safely.
There are 2 computer suites and a class set of iPads so that the students have the opportunity to explore many programs and their applications.
