Computing at Saint Edmund's

Teaching and Learning

At Saint Edmund’s we aim to give our pupils the life-skills that will enable them to utilise technology in a socially responsible and safe way.  We will deliver independent computing skills lessons as well as using technology to support learning across the entire curriculum and to ensure that our curriculum is accessible to every child.  We want our pupils to become digitally literate citizens who can operate in the 21st century workplace.  Through our computing curriculum we also want children to develop creativity, resilience and problem-solving skills. 

We currently follow the Teach Computing Scheme of work with supplementary lessons added when needed to meet need. Having discreet lessons means that the children are able to develop depth in their knowledge and skills. We also endeavour to further develop our computing skills by embedding the use of technology across the whole curriculum.

To deliver the curriculum we have a large range of equipment including: iPads, laptops, beebots, probots, crumbles and micro:bits.

Online Safety

The internet is a powerful tool for learning and communicating, however it needs to be used responsibly and safely. Online safety is taught through discreet sessions across the year in each year group as part of computing lessons and is also covered in PSHE at key points in the year.
