Our Computing Mission 

Our mission statement shows that all children are recognised as unique individuals and nurtured in a caring family environment with Christ at its centre.

This document is a statement of the aims, principles and strategies for the teaching and learning of computing at St Joseph’s RC Primary School.

Computing plays an increasingly significant role in today’s society. It is therefore vital that our pupils are equipped to utilise technology in order to enhance their development as they become confident individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens.

Computing encompasses many different kinds of technology including use of I-Pads, cameras, scanners, projectors, white boards, control equipment, programmable toys and sound recording equipment

Computing lessons

How can I help my child learn well in this subject? 

Regular, safe use of a range of technology is essential to developing understanding in this subject. Please discuss what the children have been doing in Computing - they may even be able to teach you a few things!  To develop typing skills, encourage children to time themselves typing up an interesting passage of text.



Who can I speak to for more information, or if I wish to discuss my child's progress in this subject?

For more information, you can have a discussion with your child's class teacher in the first instance.
