Curriculum  »  Computing

At St Margaret’s Primary School, we provide children with rich, deep learning experiences that balance all aspects of computing. Technology is such a big part of our everyday lives ad it is important that children are taught the skills to be able to be safe and effective in today’s modern world. Computing at St Margaret’s has deep links with every subject we teach, whether it be mathematics, science, history, art or DT, it is essential tool to learning. Our Computing Curriculum allows children to be introduced to a wide range of technology, including laptops, Ipads and interactive whiteboards, allowing them to continually practice and improve the skills they learn. This ensures they become digitally literate.
 

At St Margaret’s we take Internet Safety extremely seriously. In school we have an E-Safety Policy that provides guidance for teachers, parents and children about how to use the internet safely. Ever year group takes part in the national Internet safety Day and has a half term focus. It is vital that the children at St Margaret’s understand how to stay safe when using technology.
 

At St Margaret's we use Teach Computing and Discovery Education to support our Computing curriculum.
