We aspire for computing to be integrated with all other subjects and used as a means to aid teaching and learning; Computing lessons are often not stand-alone but taught through other topics. At Ormesby Primary we have a curriculum that is accessible to all children and prepares them both for further education and the wider world by allowing them to choose the correct technology for a particular purpose.
We support working alongside local companies and businesses through involvement with Spark Tees Valley and aim to use the local environment, industry and heritage as a vehicle to engage children in using information technology for a purpose.
At Ormesby Primary, we want children to be confident in independently using a range of computing devices and software applications. Children will be digitally literate and know how useful the internet is whilst being aware of the dangers.
Children experiment with and use information technology to create and present information in a range of ways and become competent in using varied programming software to develop their computational thinking in order to create and tinker with algorithms. It is essential they have a clear understanding of Computer Science and the important role it plays in the modern world.
