Computing is a major resource, which is used across the whole curriculum. At Rose Street we embrace the digital era and offer a rich and varied curriculum covering all aspects of modern computing. As a Federation we are well equipped, to ensure full participation in every aspect of learning; not just in terms of covering a broad computing curriculum, but using technology across the curriculum for research, presentations and general use to develop every day skills. We are passionate about technology in the classroom, every classroom is equipped with Interactive Whiteboard technology to enhance the learning experience for all pupils. This helps to deliver an audio visual experience to enhance the learning of all subjects.
Our curriculum is based on 6 main areas;
- Computational Thinking
- Computer Networks
- Communication / Collaboration
Each unit is taught as a mini-project, with skills being taught, used and then built upon throughout each lesson. Our curriculum is progressive, ensuring that as children move through the school their skills are built upon each year.
At Sheerness West Federation e-safety is a high priority. The units that we teach make specific reference to key e-Safety principles when they need to be addressed to ensure that all of our children remain safe at all times.
