Increasingly, Computing is impacting on our work and private life. It is vital that pupils have the opportunity to learn about and use modern technology so that they are prepared for life. We have strong commitment to the teaching of Computing in which we aim to develop every child’s confidence and competence in the subject. A computer suite is used by classes across the school and this provides an environment where the specific Computing skills can be taught. There are sufficient computers in the suite to ensure every child in the class can work individually.
Interactive whiteboards and data projectors with access to the internet are also available in all classes making Computing possible in all subjects. We also have a suite of mobile laptops for daily use offering opportunities to use Computing across right across the curriculum. The school follows a scheme of work that ensures pupils receive clear and structured learning that builds on their previous experiences. We are also developing opportunities for pupils to extend their learning at home through a virtual learning environment maintained by the staff.
