Students will have weekly lessons to improve their programming skills. Laptops and iPads will be regularly used in classrooms as a crucial tool across the curriculum. Students use technology tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information responsibly and creatively. They learn how to employ technology to enable rapid access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of people, communities and cultures.
Increased capability in the use of computing promotes initiative and independent learning, with students being able to make informed judgments about when and where to use computing to best effect, and to consider its applications for home and work, both now and in the future.
While we believe the internet is an excellent resource and that children should see it as part of their learning and everyday life, we are very focused on embedding e-safety across the school. Children take part in regular e-safety activities to remind them of the importance of keeping themselves safe online.
