At Beacon View Primary Academy, we believe that all children need to be equipped with the necessary technological skills to participate effectively and safely in the digital world. Our high-quality computing curriculum, ensures that all pupils have the opportunity to become effective users of technology who can:
- Understand and apply the essential principles and concepts of Computer Science, including logic, algorithms and data representation;
- Analyse problems in computational term, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems;
- Evaluate and apply information technology analytically to solve problems;
- Communicate ideas well by utilising appliances and devices throughout all areas of the curriculum.
All of our pupils from EYFS to the end of Key Stage 2, have access to a wide range of technology including iPads, laptops and interactive whiteboards. This enables them to become creative problem solvers, who are digitally literate and able to communicate effectively with the wider world both for today and in the future.
At Beacon View, we also have a Device Loan System in which families can borrow a Chromebook to enable their child to access our home learning online. This is offered to remove the barrier for families where multiple children are trying to share a single device or use small screens on mobile phones.
