Computing

Our Computing Vision - Computing is a life skill so lessons should be meaningful, and relevant to daily life. Computing should be Safe. Computing should be challenging with high expectations. Computing should be fun.

At Sandown Primary School we have embraced the new Computing curriculum and re-designed our approach to create a challenging, meaningful and relevant curriculum to equip our children with the digital skills they need for their futures.

In addition to our normal class curriculum we also hold whole school e-safety events each term and also take part in the 'Hour of Code' annually.

Our Computing Curriculum is broken down into 3 sections:

Digital Literacy

How to understand and present digital information as well as interact with it safely and appropriately.

Computer Science
Information Technology

Digital Leaders' Rap!

 

Extra-Curricular

In addition to Computing lessons, pupils are given the opportunity to take part in extra-curricular activities such as Computing Club and we also have our specialist Digital Leaders whose role is to assist pupils and staff alike. We've also held 'Code Camps' during the school holidays.
