IN COMPUTING AT HOMERSWOOD, we strive to prepare all of our pupils for an ever changing and developing digital world by giving them opportunities to practise the skills and characteristics needed to become masters of technology. Our Homerswood Values and Golden Threads are intertwined within our Computing Curriculum of ‘digital literacy’, ‘computer science’ and ‘information technology’ where knowledge and skills are modelled and taught. Pupils have a natural curiosity for technology that is nurtured at Homerswood, along with resilience, problem-solving and opportunities to collaborate with others. It is imperative that our pupils understand the positive and negative effects that using technology has on individuals, local communities, national communities and the wider world and how they can play their part in this.

It's Mental Health Week and this year's theme is all about reconnecting with nature. This is a great opportunity to remind everyone that we all need time away from screens! It can support your well-being and mood. So, this week, ditch those screens and get outside - walk, cycle, run and play - even if its raining! The screens will still be there next week! 😀
