We strive to ensure that computing is relevant, exciting and inspiring to children across the school. Our computing scheme of work is based around 'Rising Stars' which covers all key strands of online, multimedia, e-safety, programming and data. Additional computing cross curricular projects are completed using information technology as drivers, ensuring that technology is seen and used regularly for a range of tasks, allowing the children to experience how technology can be used in a range of work experiences and everyday life. E-safety is regularly reinforced each time technology is used, and through focussed PSHCE lessons, special assemblies and the annually celebrated, 'Safer Internet Day'.
We believe that technology should be embedded within the curriculum and to facilitate this ambition, the school is continuing to invest in our information technology infrastructure and in the professional development of our staff. The National Curriculum requirements are taught through a variety of methods including physical activities as well as hands-on experience, with a range of different technologies.
