Computing at Parkside
At Parkside primary school our intent is to inspire the new generation to enjoy computing and create passion and drive within them to want to pursue it in further life. By teaching computing we aim to equip our children with the ability to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. By the end of their primary journey, children should understand how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems, algorithms and a range of content safely. Additionally, we understand as a school, that using technology correctly and confidently is an important tool in both the society we live in and in the process of teaching and learning. Our vision is for all children at Parkside Primary School to become confident users of computing so that they may express their passion of multiple subjects in a variety of mediums.
