Computing

Computers and all forms of Technology are an integral component of the curriculum.

We aim to provide every pupil with the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding in computing to provide them with the best possible choices and opportunities in later life.

Children regularly have access to computers and programmable toys to develop their confidence, skills and expertise in this area. We are beginning to make increasing use of tablets.

Children not only use technology in stand-alone Computing lessons but also as a tool to support their learning in other subjects- only where it will enhance understanding or engagement.

Our network is very secure and all children are made aware of how to stay safe online as part of the curriculum.

Children learn to

  • create simple programs
  • give instructions and program digital devices
  • use technology safely
  • use technology to create, organize, store and present content.
