Computing

Computing is taught using a wide range of software and hardware including programmable toys. Classes also visit the Camden City Learning Centre (CLC) for day-long workshops at least once each year to make use of specialist resources or expertise for specific projects. An after school Tech club provide additional enrichment in this area.

Specific skills to be taught in the areas of coding, digital literacy and e-safety are planned sequentially for each year group and build throughout the school. Digital literacy activities are planned in a range of curriculum areas in order for children to develop their safe and effective use of technology for research, presentation and manipulation of information.

E-safety and digital citizenship is given a high priority within both our computing and PSHE teaching, with workshops, presentations, focus days and parent workshops adding to our teaching in this area.
