The teaching of IT at Gorringe Park
The new national curriculum for computing has been developed to equip young people in England with the skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives. Through the new programme of study for computing, they will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content.
At Gorringe we have already started to work with Wandsworth City Learning Centre and other partners including Apple to up-skill our staff and deliver this exciting curriculum.
Children will learn animation, use programmable toys from nursery onwards and take part in lessons which involve the development of logical reasoning. The safe use of the internet is a priority in our school with children being taught about the benefits and possible dangers of the internet use. We have also had several successful sessions for parents on internet safety.
We have increased the number of hand held devices in the school this year and continue to increase the children’s access to technology.
