“The principal goal of education is to create men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.” Jean Piaget
At Stoke Park Junior School we have a clear and simple vision: the children should be online-safe, online-inspired and online-confident.
Computing is an integral part of our everyday life and will play an immeasurable part in our children’s futures. At Stoke Park Junior School we will provide all of our children with the skills, creativity and enthusiasm to live and thrive in a world increasingly dependent on computing. As computing technology underpins today’s modern lifestyle 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 also enhances and extends our children’s learning across the whole curriculum whilst contributing to motivation and the development of social skills. At Stoke Park Junior, we aim to utilize the most up to date resources and recognize the need to remain aware of the potential uses of any emerging technologies.
Each child will be able to access the Internet and use the World Wide Web in a safe and respectful way. We aim to help children to understand the necessary precautions to take, how to stay safe and know where to seek help. No child should feel threatened or unsafe whilst online at school or at home. Children will also utilise the Web efficiently to enhance their learning of all subjects. The school will provide a rich bank of curriculum-based resources for children and parents to access at home.
Our high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. At Stoke Park Junior we aim to enable the children in our care to learn, create and innovate in a safe environment.
