Computing

Computing is taught in a variety of ways throughout the school. All pupils have access to the Computer Suite with networked computers and also laptops and iPads which all have filtered internet access. Every class has its own PC and an interactive whiteboard which is used effectively in all teaching, making learning both interesting and fun.

We aim to teach our pupils to use equipment and software confidently and purposefully.  We do this by teaching the new computing curriculum, which focuses more directly on coding and programming skills.  Pupils also have access to a range of software as well as web-based materials. With these skills our pupils can then use computing to enhance their learning across all areas of the curriculum.

We believe that the Internet offers a valuable resource for teachers and children but recognise its potential dangers, therefore we teach our pupils and parents about E-Safety and using technology responsibly.
