At Palmarsh Primary School, we believe that computing is an essential part of the curriculum and an integral feature of all learning. Our computing curriculum (Purple Mash) will enable the pupils to develop a wide range of skills and understanding that will equip them for the rest of your life. All pupils will be taught to use technology safely and respectfully.
Our vision at Palmarsh Primary School is to embed computing in as many learning opportunities as possible. This will provide our children with concrete experiences of when and how they can use digital media in different aspects of their lives. Through stimulating and challenging experiences children will continue to develop their love for learning and through this become confident and independent users of a range of software and hardware. In the ever-changing digital world, we aim to provide all children with, not only the skills to use the technology that exists today, but the life-long thinking skills and passion to continue to develop their love for computing through secondary school and beyond. At Palmarsh, we promote digital citizenship through modelling how social media should be used responsibly with a strong focus on creating a good digital footprint.
Below, you will find a document, Parenting in a Digital World, which will talk you through the language and issues associated with internet use and social media.
