How do our values shine through in Computing?

Respect

Children learn that the virtual world is vast, with differing views, accuracy and interpretations. They learn to identify reliable sources and respect that not all they read is true.

Compassion

Children will use the skills they have learned, to interact with, and discover more about, the wider world. This will help them develop compassion for people living in different circumstances.

Courage

Children know how to access information safely and to protect themselves in a virtual world.

Perseverance

Children learn participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. They learn that they need to continue to upskill and that learning is an ongoing process.
