GCSE Computer Science
At Fulbrook we want pupils to be masters of technology and not slaves to it. Technology is everywhere and will play a pivotal part in students' lives.
Therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our pupils to be creators not consumers and our broad curriculum encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy reflects this.
We want our pupils to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we utilise technology to model positive use. We recognise that the best prevention for a lot of issues we currently see with technology/social media is through education. We also recognise that technology can allow pupils to share their learning in creative ways.
Our knowledge rich curriculum has to be balanced with the opportunity for pupils to apply their knowledge creatively which will in turn help our pupils become skilful computer scientists. We encourage staff to try and embed computing across the whole curriculum to make learning creative and accessible. We want our pupils to be fluent with a range of tools to best express their understanding and that children are independent and confident to choose the best tool to fulfil the task and challenges they may face.
At Fulbrook we take full advantage of the “Teach Computing” Curriculum.
