Computing

Computers and other technology are used throughout the school. Computing skills are taught as a discrete subject and as a means of supporting other areas of the curriculum. Each of the 5 classrooms is equipped with either an interactive whiteboard or a touchscreen board. The children make good use of laptop computers with wireless connection to the internet.

Online safety lessons are taught across the school and all children learn about the importance of keeping themselves safe.

Our aim is to ensure all children:

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology
