At Wallands Community Primary and Nursery School, we believe that computing and online safety are vital life skills, which run throughout our curriculum and not just in discrete computing lessons. Across our entire school and curriculum our children use a range of applications, operating systems and devices to help become proficient, safe, responsible and creative users of technology, software and online systems.
Outlined in our overview (link at the bottom of the page) the children are exposed to a variety of mediums in computing. They use a multitude of different programs to enable them to access and learn different computing skills as outlined in the national curriculum. Computing is taught through class learning on the interactive whiteboards, iPads and a whole class set of laptops.
Learning is broken down into 5 areas. Digital literacy, communication, multimedia, programming and data.
