Faith & Computing
"All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made."
Be Community Minded: Our children will begin to understand how technology and the internet can be used as a tool to help strengthen community bonds and understand their place and responsibilities in God’s world.
Our computing curriculum will help pupils gain a better understanding of the world they are living in. They will have access to learning opportunities and tools to help them understand their place and responsibilities and they will have the opportunities to develop their own strengths and find their passion.
Be Empowered: Digital technology is fast moving and is a huge part of the present and the future. We will lay the foundations for pupils to become responsible, competent users of digital technology.
Our computing curriculum aims to enable enquiring and critical minds tools to approach their learning confidently and with a sense of responsibility. Our computing curriculum promotes a progression in learning within each discipline to enable our pupils to push themselves to reach their personal best being following our mission statement of being 'the best they can be'.
Be Inspired: Our children can use digital technology as a tool to actively engage in their learning, making their ideas come to life and achieving things they never thought possible.
Our computing curriculum aims to make learning relevant, fun and interesting, leading to wide-ranging experiences. Using a range of digital technologies, It encourages collaboration and brings learning to life by promoting a sense of awe and wonder and creating memories. It inspires in all pupils a love of learning and desire to continue to learn.
Be Inquisitive: Our children can use digital technology to safely find the answers to questions and satisfy their curiosity about God’s World.
Our computing curriculum aims to enable children to use technology to help them question and investigate what is happening around them and think about issues locally and globally. They will use technology to develop and nurture their own interests and explore new ideas. Our children will investigate and be encouraged to be brave and ask questions that matter.
Be Articulate: Our children will develop the necessary skills to be able to speak clearly about how they can be responsible users of technology.
Our computing curriculum aims to develop and help our children find their own ‘voice’. Our children will become increasingly confident, fluent and effective communicators using various digital technologies. They will be able to express their understanding respectfully to reflect the Christian ethos of the school.
At SSMJ we recognise the link between Computing and our Catholic Socialist Teaching, they both go hand in hand in todays modern world. We recognise the opportunities computing provides the children and the help it gives them to promote their faith to a more global audience.
