Computing (ICT)

Computing underpins all subjects within the national curriculum. Children use technology throughout the school and although this is mainly linked to working with computers, they use a wide range of additional equipment.

Children learn the necessary computing skills in lessons but then apply them across the curriculum for research, presenting their work and increasingly through the internet to extend their learning.

Online safety is not only taught discretely through computing but additionally during PSHE lessons and whole school sessions such as e-safety day providing the foundations that lead to well-rounded global citizens.

The school has adopted a scheme of work that is used for both planning and assessment which exposes pupils to a wide variety of skills, experiences and real-life scenarios. This is a constantly reviewed provision for computing in a quickly changing and developing area.
