Meet Carter: Our Longmoor Curriculum Computing Character
Carter loves his IT. Whether it is programming, using an IPAD, mobile phone or laptop, Carter recognises that IT is part of our world and it has so many uses.
He knows that online safety is so important and wants to emphasise that you should keep all personal details safe and follow lessons you have each term. He knows that games and messages to friends are fun but that everyone needs to be safe online.
In school he wants you to become confident with using all the different technology and to become experts in programming and use a range of software.
Computing At Longmoor
Vision and Aims
Our aim is to become an "e-confident" school where ICT is integrated effectively in the planning, teaching, learning and assessment of all areas of the Curriculum. Our goal is to generate pupils who are independent, confident and responsible users of ICT in order to prepare them for life in an increasingly ICT rich world. We aim to further develop the potential ICT has upon teaching and learning, thus making a significant impact on both our pupils and staff.
ICT prepares pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are increasingly transformed by access to varied and developing technology. Pupils use ICT tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly, creatively and with discrimination.
