To ensure high-quality Computing provision, we have a specialist Computing teacher. We follow the National Centre for Computing Education's scheme of learning. The learning pathway can be found below:
We have a proud history of taking part in the annual Bebras Challenge and Hour of Code competitions. Several of our children have performed so well that they have been asked to participate in the Oxford Computing Challenge.
We are constantly seeking to teach our children about how to stay safe Online. As so much of 21st Century life is spent on the Internet, our children need to learn the skills to protect themselves when web browsing, using social media or playing games. During Computing lessons, circle times and during our annual Internet Safety Day.
We use two resources to support teaching:
1. ‘Be Internet Legends’ which has been designed by Google and another called eAware.
2. eAWARE offers a unique online safety programme for both schools and families, designed by a team of educational psychologists, teachers and child protection experts.
