"We are currently preparing students for jobs that don't yet exist, using technologies that haven't been invented, in order to solve problems we don't know are problems yet." 

               Richard Riley

 

At Great Wishford we understand the immense value technology plays in supporting the Computing and whole school curriculum, day-to-day life of our school and also the increasing role it plays in our pupils’ lives as they take their next steps in future learning. We believe that technology can provide: enhanced collaborative learning opportunities; better engagement of pupils; easier access to rich content; support conceptual understanding of new concepts and support for the needs of all our pupils.

Our aim is for all our pupils to flourish in their computational thinking, problem solving skills and creativity. Our children will be able to build on knowledge learned in Computing and other subjects using information technology skills and by becoming computer literate. The use of the Knowsley Computer Scheme across the school underpins the curriculum needs for all of these areas.
