A flourishing digital engineer at The Ridge uses computational thinking and creativity in the most efficient ways to solve problems whilst maximising accuracy and minimising resources. Through developing computer science, information technology and digital literacy we prepare our pupils for the future digital world. Digital engineers at The Ridge Junior School will be able to code for a variety of practical and inventive purposes, connect with others safely and respectfully, communicate their ideas well using a range of devices and collect, organise and present data effectively.
At The Ridge Junior School children use the Internet on a regular basis to aid their learning. As part of teaching the curriculum each year group has e-safety teaching to remind them of the importance of keeping themselves safe online. Our e-safety policy explains in more detail the actions we take to set out our expectations.
