At Christopher Rawlins we want our children to use the power of technology, while empowering them as curious individuals to use it with wisdom and confidence. With ongoing investment in devices across the school for teaching and learning, the use of technology, computational thinking and digital literacy is woven into the curriculum.
We give our pupils opportunities to gain knowledge and practical skills that can be applied and adapted to tasks. With skills taught to solve problems, they will be equipped for an ever-changing digital world. Building on these life skills and in conjunction with the PHSCE curriculum; we will enable them to embrace and utilise new technology in a socially responsible and safe way to flourish in the wider world now, and in the ever expanding but undetermined future of technology.
