At Lime Tree, our aim is that by the end of their time with us, children are able to support and enrich their learning through the use of technology.
With an ever-evolving modern society, the ability to use computing effectively is an essential life skill for our pupils. As computing is continually developing and new technologies are emerging, we strive to give all pupils the skills needed to prepare them for the future.
Children will communicate, express themselves and develop ideas through the use of a number of different technologies. ICT is integrated throughout the curriculum and we are well resourced, with a range of equipment such as computers, laptops, iPads, and interactive whiteboards.
A high quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, 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, and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
