At Lanesend Primary School, we want to equip our children with the skills and creativity required to change the world. They must use their Maths, Science and Design Technology skills in order to understand computing systems. We want them to be digitally literate on a range of systems so they can be active participants in the digital world. Developing digital resilience is a key aspect of the curriculum. Our children are equipped to recognise and overcome the challenges of the modern digital world. We follow Kapow for our Computing scheme of work.
