Computing

Children with computersThe school is proud of its Information Technology facilities. We have a substantial number of Chromebooks available in school so that all the children in Key Stage 2 can work off a device at the same time. All children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 have access to an iPad throughout the day. The technology we use links to Google Classroom for the children to complete assignments and return their work through cloud-based technology.

We have a range of subscription in school that the children have access to through the iPads and Chromebooks such as Nessy, TTRS, Numbots, Spelling Shed, and Accelerator Reader.

The computing curriculum is split into four areas:
• Programming: Children learn coding and make their own programs and apps.
• Creativity beyond programming: Using information technology to enhance and enrich our learning.
• Applying ICT in Society: Investigating how ICT is used including systems and innovation.
• Safety: The importance of keeping safe when online, cyberbullying and identity security.
