Computing is taught as both a separate subject each week and is embedded in the curriculum of all other subjects. We follow the National Curriculum for computing, which we modify to suit the needs and abilities of our children.
We aim to develop all children's abilities in basic word processing, including saving, editing and printing their work. Children are taught how to add pictures to text, use spreadsheets and how to create and modify a simple database. Children learn to program the movements of onscreen Turtles using basic commnands in KS1 and mroe complex programming in KS2.
We have 30 laptops on a mobile trolley and we are now investing in tablet technology. Every classroom has an interactive whiteboard and all Early Years and KS1 classrooms have 3 computers for the children to access as part of their continuous provision.
