A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.
Primary National Curriculum
At Penruddock Primary School we embrace a computing curriculum that reflects the increasing role played by technology in all aspects of society. Confident, creative and productive use of this technology is an essential skill for life. At Penruddock Primary we recognise that ICT capability is not just a set of basic skills but can be used to
support logical reasoning and problem solving, analysis, research and design across all aspects of the curriculum.
Our computing curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:
Our commitment to new and emerging technologies enables children to access state of the art
equipment to enhance their learning including computers, laptops, netbooks and ipads - reflective of the range of technology beyond school. Children are encouraged to apply their skills in computing across the curriculum and to appreciate how computers are applied to support a whole range of tasks in life after school. We have recently worked with Cumbria STEM centre and Appleby Grammar School to extend opportunities to work with programming technology and robotics.
