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.

E 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
