At Mile Oak Primary School we are passionate about providing quality opportunities and experiences for the development of Computing skills and knowledge. We are Thinking Big in order to create digital citizens of the future; compassionate users who have inquiring minds, in-depth knowledge and understanding and critical thinking skills. Computers, tablets, programmable robots, digital cameras and video cameras are just some of the tools that we use to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. Discrete knowledge and embedded learning through computing lessons and cross curricular enrichment activities allows our pupils to fulfil their potential and become upstanding digital citizens of the future.
