Our aim is for children to become confident, enthusiastic, independent, creative and responsible users of technology.
All children have a weekly lesson with a specialist primary computing teacher in the school computer suite in addition to using technology in their learning across other areas of the curriculum.
From Reception onwards, children are encouraged to explore technology around them by using electronic toys, sound recording and listening devices and suitable programs and websites on computers and tablets.
A carefully planned and progressive curriculum ensures that by Year 6 children can use a range of technology equipment and programs and can develop, write and debug their own programs in Scratch code.
All children develop their typing skills, working towards touch typing, through regular practice with appropriate keyboard games and teaching websites.
Learning about e-safety is integrated into computing topics in every year group.
From Year 3 children learn how to use Google Classroom to access learning both in school and at home.
Our computer suite is equipped with a projector and sufficient laptop computers for a class of children to work individually. All classrooms are have the latest interactive panel display screens and several laptop computers, plus additional access to shared laptops.
The hall has a computer linked to a large TV monitor which is used for music, dance and drama lessons and whole school worship.
