Our aim in teaching Computing is to prepare children for participation in a rapidly changing world. Our teaching helps to equip the children with the technological skills to become independent learners. The skills are taught in specific Computing lessons which are active and practical. Links with Mathematics, Science, and Design and Technology are maintained and encouraged. The curriculum is further enhanced through the use of programmable devices and robots, I-Pads, video cameras, and digital cameras.
The school is continually updating and adding to its hardware and software. We have new state of the art interactive boards in some of the classrooms and projector systems in others that are used to enhance teaching across the curriculum. We have a set of student I-Pads which are used by the children regularly in Computing lessons and across the entire curriculum.
Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
As a school we use Purple Mash for our Computing curriculum.
