We recognise that computers underpin today’s modern lifestyle. Our vision is to develop independent learners who are well equipped for their future and aim for all children to gain the appropriate knowledge, skills, and competencies.  They will develop confidence and independence to plan, design, create, program and evaluate information through the use of IT.  Lessons will introduce the children to new computing skills and allow them to practise skills already taught.  It is vital that the children learn safely and begin to develop their e-safety skills and knowledge.  We aim to ensure they can use digital technology thoughtfully throughout their lives. 

The focus of our Computing curriculum is to learn about programming computers rather than on just using programs.  Work within each year group ensures continuity and progression and is closely linked to other areas of the curriculum.  All classes have timetabled sessions in the IT Suite to give pupils the opportunity to enhance, practise and apply their skills. They also use a range of Computing equipment and software including iPads, PCs and programmable robots, from Nursery to Year 2, to enhance their skills and improve their confidence using IT in the world around them.

Children are taught how to use a computer as well as learning about algorithms (i.e. sets of instructions). To illustrate this we do not always involve computers, teachers may use the idea of following recipes or the process of getting ready for PE.

Our WOW Experiences

What Computing looks like in our school

We have a wide range of Apps and software to further develop the children’s skills as they progress through the school. Children also look at ways in which computer programs can be used to create, organise, store, retrieve and edit digital content. They are given the opportunity to create and debug simple programs of their own, developing logical reasoning skills and taking their first steps in using devices like Beebots and BlueBots.

We are very lucky to have a class set of iPads to further enrich our Computing curriculum, which are very popular with the children in all year groups.  They enhance the learning in all areas and we have a wide range of cross-curricular Apps and activities.

Upon starting school, children are taught the importance of Internet Safety which is an integral part of the Computing curriculum. The children follow our Internet Safety Rules and know how to stay safe online.

All children in Year 1 and Year 2 are issued with their username and password details whilst in Reception. Reception children are usually issued with their username and password details after Christmas. If your child does not know their log in details please contact either your child’s class teacher or the school office.

Each year, we host a Computing experience for Key Stage 1 children from some of the schools within our local area.  The children who attend the experience are those who show they have good computer skills and knowledge and who love learning in this subject.  Skills we have learnt during these workshops have focused on animation and movie making.  We have used Stop Motion animations where the children have enjoyed filming short clips using their own characters.  We have also used iMovie to make trailers, working together to include text, film and animation.  The sessions are great fun and the children always work so hard and have produced some excellent results!! See our WOW Experiences above.
