Computing

We use computers and other technology throughout the school. We teach computing skills as a subject and to support other areas of the curriculum.

Our classrooms are well-equipped. Each of the five classrooms has an interactive whiteboard or a touchscreen board. The children use laptop computers with wireless connection to the internet.

We teach online safety lessons across the school. All children learn about the importance of keeping themselves safe.

Our aim is to ensure all children:

  • understand and apply the basic principles and concepts of computer science

These include abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation

  • can analyse problems in computational terms

As they practise writing computer programs they learn to solve such problems.

  • can evaluate and apply information technology to solve problems¬†

This includes new or unfamiliar technologies.

  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of the technology
