Computing is an essential skill for children to learn and become comfortable with.
At The New Forest Primary School we teach computing both as discrete lessons as well as integrating into the main curriculum. This allows teachers to develop specific skills which the children can then use independently.
The computing curriculum covers children using computing programs, digital equipment, and programming both software and hardware. In addition we teach the children the importance of using the internet safely, and e-safety is taught throughout the school. Enabling children to become familiar with emerging technology is vital in helping them to prepare for an ever changing world.
We have a suite of laptops at KS2, Learn pads across the two sites and 8 iPads at KS1. We also have a large variety of digital equipment online platforms that the children use to enhance their learning.
Each year we have a focus on e-safety using the CEOPS webiste, but we also weave e-safety throughout the curriculum.
