Computing

Our children become confident and capable users of technology early in school life. From Reception onwards children enjoy a broad range of ICT based technology in their curriculum. 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.
