Children use computers to learn the following skills:
Research, Music and Sound, Multimedia, Modelling and Simulations, Handling Data, Digital Imagery, Control and Communicating, Collaborating and Publishing.
We teach specific computing skills in one discrete lesson per week using the Purple Mash scheme, but we also use computing as a tool to teach other subjects.
Children at the Junior School are given the opportunity to participate in a scheme to buy a Chromebook. These are regularly used to support learning both in school and at home and children bring them to school every day. For those children who do not buy their own Chromebook, there is one allocated to them for use in school.
