Computing Statement of Intent.
At SMSJ it is our intention to underpin our mission statement into our Computing curriculum. It is firmly based upon our belief that, ‘with God all things are possible’ (Matthew 19:26). It is encapsulated in our motto: Nurture, Inspire, Achieve.
Nurture: We care for, support and protect our children whilst they are growing and learning with us and encourage them to do the same for each other and the wider community. We recognise how vital it is that our children learn about online safety and this is at the heart of our computing curriculum and the first thing that every child learns in the Computing curriculum at SMSJ.
Inspire: We inspire each child to become a confident, inquiring citizen with an enthusiasm and desire to learn and explore. We value and promote good understanding of computer programs and skills so our children can apply their knowledge in aspects of their everyday life. This will also broaden and inspire opportunities for their future.
Achieve: We develop each child to be capable of achieving in life, to develop academically and socially, and to succeed in school and beyond. With the growing use of technology in our society we instill the belief in our children that with their increasing knowledge of the Computing world anything is possible.
