Computing

Computing is changing the lives of everyone. Through the teaching of computing we equip children to participate in a rapidly changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. We enable children to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners.

We teach the computing curriculum through a mixture of subject specific teaching and cross curricular approaches. This allows the children to develop their skills in a meaningful and effective way. As a small village primary school we are very fortunate to have a range of equipment available including a bank of laptops and iPads, as well as interactive whiteboards or Smartboards in each teaching area. In addition to computers, our curriculum incorporates a range of technologies including CD and video records, digital cameras and programmable toys.Teachers plan the delivery of the computing curriculum carefully to enable children to select the best equipment and to use it effectively.
