Glapthorn CE Primary School

Computing

Computing is a subject in its own right and involves the use of computers for coding, data handling, graphics etc.  Standalone computing lessons are taught from Year One upwards but it is also regarded as being part of every other subject within the National Curriculum.  We are preparing our pupils to live in a world of rapid technological change.  Children find this new technology interesting and exciting.  We believe that we must harness this enthusiasm and use computers daily as valuable tools to assist learning.  It is for this reason that we do not have a computer suite as we believe it is more beneficial for children to use the computers and i-pads throughout the day for learning, rather than at a few specific times during the week.  We have an excellent ratio of at least 1 computer for every three children.  This is much better than the government guidelines and this means all children are able to work on computers.  There is an interactive whiteboard in each classroom and a bank of i-pads and laptops. We have invested a lot of money in IT equipment as we believe it will benefit our children greatly.
