Computing

 

Knowledge of Computing is now essential in today’s Primary Schools. Children throughout the school have access to computers from Reception class to Year 6. Computing is taught both through the curriculum areas and as a subject in its own right. 

 

What is Computing? 

 

Computing is the new ICT and can be divided into 3 areas: Computer Science, Information Technology and Digital Literacy (which includes internet safety).  We have then categorised the aims for the new computing curriculum as identified in the Programme of study issued by the Department for Education into these three areas, detailed below. 

 

 

The school has a purpose built computer suite, an iPad caddy and a bank of laptops available for all pupil usage throughout the day and all classrooms have computers. All computers have safe filtered internet access for pupils and staff via broadband connection. Teaching areas have interactive whiteboards for large screen display and whole class interactive teaching.
