E-safety is our number one priority before teaching the computer units. All staff and children are taught about how to stay safe online, with assemblies and 'themed e-safety weeks' to reinforce the importance in this digital age.
The 'Smart' rules we follow:
Our children use a wide range of computer programmes and digital equipment. Each of our classrooms has at least two computer systems, there is a bank of computers and i-pads for whole class and group work and all our children are confident and familiar with the computer as a normal classroom resource. There is an interactive whiteboard and camera in all classrooms and children are confident in using this to support their learning.
We aim to develop the children's process of logical reasoning, and to stimulate their use of language. We are committed to providing the children with the necessary skills to cope in an increasingly technological society. We follow an ICT scheme of work which encompasses all aspects of the new National curriculum.
As a school, we use Purple Mash where every pupil has their own log-in so can access this learning from both home and at school. Work can be set remotely and also marked remotely (if handed in online).
If you would like any further information about the way we teach Computing or how it is integrated across the curriculum, please speak to your child's class teacher or our Computing coordinator; Mrs Thompson.
