Computing

At Treloweth, we recognise that the technological world is evolving rapidly and aim to provide children with the computing skills and experiences they will need to thrive as active digital creators. We continue to evaluate the effectiveness of our ICT deployment and engage with current international research to identify how technology is best used to support children’s learning across the curriculum. We are committed to instilling in our children an appreciation of the wide opportunities provided by digital technologies alongside a secure understanding of how to keep safe online.

 

Each week, KS1 and KS2 pupils receive a dedicated Computing lesson where we develop skills in the three aspects of the new computing curriculum: computer science, information technology and digital literacy. These lessons follow a carefully planned sequence resulting in high-quality outcomes that the children can be proud of.

As well as a weekly dedicated computing lesson, the use of laptops is encouraged in many areas throughout the curriculum and provides pupils opportunities to work together on a particular skill or projects linked to other subjects.

We continually monitor, maintain and upgrade both our hardware and software to ensure the children have access to high quality equipment which can be used across the curriculum. Other resources include Bee-Bots and Blue-Bots, webcams and dataloggers which are used to develop a variety of skills and enhance the learning experience within Computing and across the curriculum. Wherever possible, we use our strong links to local secondary schools to further enhance the curriculum and device experience.

A high priority for us is safeguarding children: 'e-safety' is taught to every pupil across the school and is reinforced throughout all of our Computing units. We encourage the safe use of technology at home through SpellingShed, TT Rockstars and Gooseberry Planet.
