Possibility, Enrichment, Emotional Awareness, Community
Battle Hill is a beacon of good practice using technology through collaboration, giving our learners a sense of place in their community and the wider world. We aim to enable our students to be future ready by developing life-long skills, broadening aspirations and challenging pervasive stereotypes in an ever-changing digital world.
We do this through:
- Providing an enjoyable creative and child centred approach
- An inclusive spiral curriculum which builds knowledge and understanding through practise and demonstration of learning
- Practical work, application of knowledge and development of computing language, preparing children with the skills they need to support future education and careers
- Teaching and learning in a technology rich environment
- Close work and collaboration with NTLT and several community partners (eg Nissan) which allows us to develop digital citizens of the future
- Enrichment opportunities (eg DigiLadies, Lego Club)
- Strategic Planning of staff CPD with Jigsaw24 (Apple Solution Experts), underpinning the programme of ongoing staff development
- 1:1 iPads across Key Stage 2
The computing curriculum at Battle Hill Primary School enables effective coding and use of technology.
It encourages competency in coding for a variety of practical and inventive purposes, including the application of pupils’ ideas to other subjects. Children can connect safely and respectfully, understanding the need to act within the law and with moral and ethical integrity. It develops an understanding of the connected nature of devices and the ability to communicate well by using applications and devices throughout the curriculum. Pupils are given the opportunity to collect, organise and manipulate data effectively.
The curriculum is designed to broaden aspirations and a belief of gender equality in computing and STEM subjects!
