Digital Leaders Overview
At Throckley Primary School, we consider all our children to be digital leaders. Through our progressive computing curriculum and strong commitment to promoting online safety, all our children are equipped with the substantive and disciplinary knowledge to become good digitally-literate citizens when they leave.
Respecting the British Value of democracy, every child in KS1 and KS2 vote for a member of their class to represent them in the ‘Digital Leaders’ club. These selected children work closely with the Computing Curriculum Leader to develop and deepen knowledge and skills across all three computing strands (digital literacy, information technology and computer science). This has previously included exploring a range of hard/software, creating user support videos and even promoting the growth of our school Twitter feed. Our digital leaders encourage respect and responsibility towards our technological equipment in school as well as inspire others to be curious and enthusiastic about computing. They apply their knowledge and skills to support both class teachers and pupils to be successful in not only discrete computing lessons but also when using technology across the curriculum. Working in partnership with our fellow OWL Trust schools, digital leaders have ample opportunity to collaborate through a variety of workshops and network with other children within our local community.
