Every child is taught how to handle and store, process and transmit information in a variety of forms using the computer and calculators. Word-processing and graphics packages are also used and children become confident in using ICT in many areas of the curriculum. We have an ICT suite housing 30 Networked computers, where a whole class are taught specific skills and build up computer competencies as well as using ICT to inform and enhance their studies.
“A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.”
National curriculum - September 2013
We teach all three aspects of the computing curriculum:
● Computer science
● Digital literacy, including E-safety
● Information Technology
As well as teaching children the computing curriculum, we also make use of technology to support the teaching of other subjects.
In Nursery and Reception the children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. They also select and use technology for particular purposes.
