How we teach computing

Computing lessons are integrated into the topics that children learn about each term.

Learning about the key areas of computing enables the children to understand how the skills they are learning can be used in the wider world.

Computing is also actively encouraged in all subjects. Pupils are actively encouraged to use the wide range of devices to research and produce work not possible without the device. Google classroom is often used during lessons to enable the children to become familiar with the program which can be accessed from home when necessary.

Computing is a highly valued subject at All Saints CEVA school and this is shown through the constant investment made by the school in this area. We have a great range of devices in school that are readily available for all children. Some of the devices that we have in school are:

  • iPads
  • Laptops
  • Programmable Robots
  • Digital Cameras
  • Interactive HD Screens in every room.

Online-Safety is at the core of everything related to computing within the school and students are constantly reminded of how to stay safe online and in the virtual world. If they have any concerns they are also taught how to report them appropriatelyWe recognise the importance of Computing and the need to stay safe online. With this in mind we organise various workshops across the year. In these workshops we talk about the need for Internet Safety and invite experts in to talk to the children.
