At Manor Park we aim to ensure that all pupils:
§ can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
§ can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
§ can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
§ are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.
Early Years Provision at Manor Park Infants and Nursery:
Children in our Early Years recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. They select and use technology for particular use.
Key stage 1
Our KS1 children are taught to:
§ understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions
§ create and debug simple programs
§ use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs
§ use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content
§ recognise common uses of information technology beyond school
§ use technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private; identify where to go for help and support when they have concerns about content or contact on the internet or other online technologies.
