“A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world” (Taken from the Programme of Study for Computing, NC 2014). At Britannia, we are keen to ensure that we provide pupils with a high-quality computing education and keep pace with the rapidly changing world of technology around us. We have a dedicated ICT suite for weekly Computing lessons alongside a variety of devices to enhance learning across the curriculum. Our lessons and units of work are constantly adapted to ensure that we are providing an engaging, progressive Computing curriculum.
The new curriculum has a much greater focus on computer science and there are opportunities within every year group to create, debug and learn a programming language through software like Kodu, Scratch and Go.
Every class has an interactive whiteboard and visualiser, as well as access to iPads, Chromebooks, laptops, digital cameras and a wide range of software.
We are proud to have a group of pupils from Years 4,5 and 6 who are ‘Digital Leaders’ within the school, supporting less confident pupils and teachers with the use of technology across the Key Stages.
