Our School Vision
Let Your Light Shine
“Even so, let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and. glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:15-16
We are committed to creating a positive, safe and nurturing Christian environment, where all members of the school and wider community will be respected and valued.
Within God’s love, we will support and encourage one another to grow and flourish…
to be the very best we can be.
At Staunton and Corse C of E Academy we encourage children to be masters of technology and not slaves to it. We aim to educate and prepare our children for the rapidly changing society through the use of technology: positively, responsibly and safely. We want our pupils to be creators and not just consumers; our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this. We aim to embed our school vision within our computing curriculum, whilst encouraging children to let their light shine throughout the progression of the computing skills and knowledge.
We recognise technology can allow pupils to share their learning in creative ways. Therefore we encourage staff to try and embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. Our intention is that computing supports children’s creativity and cross curricular learning to engage children and enrich their experiences in school.
Our whole computing curriculum is shaped by our school vision: respect, encourage, inspire and achieve; encouraging children to shine their light before others. We teach the national curriculum, supported by clear skills and knowledge progression, ensuring that prior knowledge and skills are developed and nurtured.
Our computing skills are taught both discretely and embedded across the curriculum, supporting other areas of learning throughout the school. Our curriculum specialises in E-safety, programming, data handling, multimedia and technology in the world. In EYFS, children are encouraged to use technology to support personal learning enquiries and promote expressive skills. In Key Stage 1, children are taught to use equipment and software confidently, to handle information and support their problem solving and recording skills. In Key Stage 2, our children extend their use of computing that they use for communication, investigation and programming and work to understand how to communicate safely.
Our children enjoy and value the computing curriculum we deliver. Our approach to the computing curriculum results in an inspiring, engaging and high-quality computing education. The implementation of the computing curriculum ensures that when children leave Staunton and Corse C of E Academy, they are confident and safe users of ICT with an understanding of how technology works.
