At Brook Field school, we aim to equip pupils with the skills to become competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology. Pupils will be taught to evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies to solve a range of problems.
E-Safety is an integral part of our computing curriculum and our school E-Safety Policy aims to help ensure the safe and appropriate use of technology. Children will develop their skills to be able to effectively communicate and connect with others responsibly and know how to keep themselves safe online.
At Brook Field, your child will have access to a wide variety of computing activities, in line with the National Curriculum and computing lessons will cover the three main strands of computing: Computer science (including coding); Information technology (using technology to create content) and Digital Literacy (to include E Safety).
