Computing

Computers and digital media are used extensively throughout the school. In addition to our ICT suite and our Learning Resource Centre, each class has access to an interactive whiteboard, desktop, laptops and iPads to allow children to use computing across the curriculum and allow a variety of media to be used for teaching and learning purposes.

A wide variety of software is available that is both challenging and motivating, providing children with the opportunity to learn data storage, retrieval and editing, develop keyboard, word processing, database, presentation and publishing skills, design and create digital art and learn computer programming skills. Computers provide opportunities for further mathematical experiences and a variety of problem-solving situations. Gradually, children are made aware of the wider use of Information Technology, its importance worldwide and how to be a responsible internet user through our e-safety lessons.
