Computing and ICT

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 We teach computing throughout the school, working towards the following aims of the national curriculum -

All pupils:

  • Can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
  • Can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.
  • Can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
  • Are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

 

We also use ICT throughout the school. ICT is an important tool for teaching and learning across all other subject areas. We endeavour to help pupils see ICT as a natural tool for research, analysis and presentation. Each classroom has an Interactive Whiteboard and laptop and the children have regular access to ipads, cameras, and laptops as well as other devices.

 

E-safety is taught as a specific focus as well as being regulalrly referred to within other computing topics and activities.
