Computing

When you learn computing, you’re thinking about thinking.

Computing at St Weonards Academy is taught in a creative and inspiring curriculum in line with the new National Curriculum.

Computing skills are taught to the children through Computing lessons using our banks of laptops, chromebooks, suite of Windows PCs, iPads, Promethean Interactive Whiteboards and other digital devices. Such technology is enabling our pupils to participate in an exciting, contemporary Computing curriculum, as well as allowing teachers to embed the use of technology as a learning tool across the curriculum.

The computing curriculum here at St Weonards is broken down into three main areas.

Computer Science

(Computing, algorithms and programming) – Children learn how digital systems work and use this to create programs

Information Technology

Children are able to use, express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology

Digital Literacy

Children use technology safely and keep themselves safe online (Take a look at how to keep safe online (link here to the Online Safety section of our website)

Our school follows the Kapow Computing Scheme of work. Where possible we find creative cross-curricular links and embed the Computing skills ladder within our main topics.
