Our Vision

Our Computing Vision at Oak Meadow Primary School

 

We aim to give the children at Oak Meadow Primary School the skills and capabilities to use technology confidently in all aspects of their learning life. 

 

We do this is in order to:

 

  1. Improve pupils’ achievements by using technology in new and exciting ways through a creative curriculum to inspire awe and wonder in our children.

  2. To maximise the efficiency of the educational service we provide by using technology to help parents connect with learning in schools and form a holistic learning community.

  3. To safeguard pupils’ interests and protect them by ensuring we are always mindful of the effects of developing new technologies within our school.

Information for Parents

Technology and the Internet can be fantastic – they can help our children to learn, to create amazing things, to communicate and to entertain themselves and each other. Our children are surrounded by this technology – it is part and parcel of their daily lives.  

 

Using technology and the Internet well is about using it safely and responsibly. Things can go wrong by accident or if behaviour isn’t sensible or respectful.  Our job is not to stop our young people from using technology but to ensure that they have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to successfully navigate themselves through the online world, so they become good digital citizens.

An eSafety video created by children at Oak Meadow Primary School can be viewed below.

We have developed a framework for eSafety at our school to equip our children with the skills they will need for their digital life. The eight aspects detailed are the cornerstones to eSafety education at Oak Meadow and taught and assessed across every aspect of our curriculum.
