Computing

Computing at Felbridge

Our aims

We are committed to providing all children with the tools, support and structure to enable them to become independent digital literate citizens.

 

Our 3 steps to success

At Felbridge, computing is delivered in impactful lessons from reception to year 6 in regular weekly sessions (usually 1 hour in length).  We ensure all children can access the computing curriculum by differentiating each lesson and providing adult support where necessary.

 

Our 3 steps to success focus on Digital Literacy, Computer Science and Information Technology.

  • Computer Science (focussing on computational thinking)- Computational thinking involves looking at a problem and working out a way a computer might be able to help you solve it.
  • Digital literacy is about being able to find, sort, evaluate, manage, and create information in digital forms.
  • Information Technology – this area looks at how to use software on the computers to purposefully store information in different types of documents.

 

Lifelong learning

Computing empowers children to explore their own understanding of the digital world through computational thinking and approach tasks with creative solutions.

This subject is fascinating due to its ever-evolving nature with innovative technology and approaches always on the horizon.  Here at Felbridge, we strive to embrace this change by seeking to provide up to date hardware and software to give all the pupils the best opportunities for learning. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems, and a range of content.

Teaching staff will regularly monitor children's progress through a range of assessments which allows for a tailored approach to education.

We are as excited as all of you and your children to be starting this journey together.
