Computers are part of everyday life and our pupils are taught the skill of ‘computational thinking’ to enable them to be ready for the digital world.
Our teaching and learning develops confidence in the use of computers and IT and has strong links to maths and STEM . Pupils learn how computers and computer systems work, they solve problems, design and build programs, developing ideas using different technology.
Pupils apply and manipulate various software including Scratch. Purple Mash and Sonic Pi. We have a shared policy relating to the use of the internet to allow access to secure, screened sites only.
Pupils and parents are regularly informed about how to stay safe on line and there is an expectation that all pupils and parents will follow the school’s e- safety policy.
