We teach all children how to use technology successfully and ensure they learn how to use this technology safely and respectfully, keeping personal information private.

From Key Stage 1 onwards, children are now being taught how to create and ’debug’ simple programs and to use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs to name but a few of the areas of study.
