The aim of Computing and Technology Curriculum at Alderton Junior School is to develop confident learners who have the technological skills they need to move beyond KS2 and to equip them for the ever-changing needs of the future. Our comprehensive curriculum develops computational thinking skills, digital literacy and understanding of information technology. In addition, half-termly e-safety lessons are built into the curriculum which help pupils to understand how to use technology in a safe, purposeful and creative way. This approach provides pupils with the exposure to a variety of different technologies, such as computers, tablets, raspberry pis and robots, that will enrich their experiences.
