Computing

 

Overview

At Plaxtol Primary School our aim is for all children to feel safe online and have fair, equal access to, and understanding of, technology in the modern world.

We want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, safely and responsibly. We want our pupils to understand there is always a choice with using technology and we recognise that the best prevention for many potential issues is through education. We recognise that technology can allow pupils to share their learning in creative ways. We also understand the accessibility opportunities technology can provide. We encourage staff to embed e-safety and computing across the curriculum to make learning creative and accessible.

One of our main aims at Plaxtol to ensure that all children love learning about computing! The subject should be taught and learnt both discretely and in a cross curricular way. Computing should support many areas of the curriculum.

Subject knowledge is drawn from the national curriculum, through schemes of work, from colleagues or on occasions during staff meetings. Progression of skills documents are being used to support planning.

Technology is provided for both staff and children in various forms: computers, laptops, iPads, Beebots, interactive white boards and a vast range of software. Staff promote the safer, positive use of technology and the internet throughout the whole curriculum, not just in stand-alone lessons.

 

We use TEACH Computing to underpin our curriculum
