Our Statement of Intent for Computing and Online Safety at SMG is that we are:
Preparing our pupils for the digital world; unlocking the potential
Technology is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching Computing we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology.
It is our intention to enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a safe and effective way. We want children to know more, remember more and understand more in computing so that they leave primary school computer literate.
We know that the internet is an amazing resource, however we fully understand the risks and therefore we aim to provide your child with the tools to use it productively, positively and safely.
