Our Computing lessons develop pupils’ digital literacy, equipping pupils with the skills to use basic computer programming and to use technology to research and investigate topics and to present their finished work.

Over the course of their time in school, lessons gradually develop pupils’ skills – beginning with simple floor robots and following instructions in Key Stage One up to creating computer programmes in Year Six using software such as Scratch.

We also embed use of technology in other lessons – using PowerPoint and Word to present final pieces of work and filming software to create simple movies.

We regularly teach e-safety to ensure that pupils feel confident and safe when using computers and the internet and that they know what to do if they come across something either inappropriate or uncomfortable.
