Vision and Intent:
At Cavendish, we want our children to leave our school competent with a range of different technologies, knowing how to use them creatively and imaginatively for different purposes. It’s important to us that children understand the dangers that technology can bring but are able to navigate these confidently and critically question information (and their sources) found online as a force of habit. Pupils should leave Cavendish as digital leaders, passionate about their use of technology and ready to work in a modern world with its growing technologies.
- To create responsible, thoughtful and kind users of information and communication technologies.
- To understand the key computer science principles such as algorithms and data representation.
- To be able to solve problems with coding, using a growing experience of computer programming and debugging.
- To approach information technology with a problem-solving mindset, evaluating its effectiveness.
