Learning Together, Growing Together

Our aim is to provide a high-quality computing education which equips children to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal role in our pupils’ lives, therefore we want to educate them on how to be caring, responsible and skilful computer scientists. As a school we encourage technology to be embedded across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and inclusive. By the time children leave Filby Primary School, they will have gained key knowledge and skills in the three main areas of the computing curriculum: computer science (programming and understanding how digital systems work), information technology (using computer systems to store, retrieve and send information) and digital literacy (evaluating digital content and using technology safely and respectfully). We want our pupils to be able to operate in the 21st century workplace and we want them to know the career opportunities that they can aspire to have in the future.

What does Computing look like at Filby?


As a school, we follow Mr P ICT's DARES projects. The DARES projects are an innovative approach to teaching computing which encourage pupils to be critical thinkers, problem solvers and computational thinkers while creating purposeful content to demonstrate how learning can be applied across the wider curriculum.
