Computing at Leatherhead Trinity
At Leatherhead Trinity, our vision is to use the aims of the computing curriculum to support, enhance and extend children’s learning. We believe that children should develop effective skills that they can use in school and at home, as well as preparing them to meet the needs of an ever changing society.
Computing and digital literacy is an increasingly important teaching tool for enhancing learning in the classroom, and computer literacy now ranks alongside English and Maths as the foundation of a good education. Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard and all children have access to the computing suite and a wide range of equipment, including: laptops, flipcams, LearnPads and iPads.
Throughout our school we want to provide children with the computing skills to support their learning and we educate them on how to use it safely. Consequently, online safety is an essential part of the curriculum at Leatherhead Trinity.
As computing and its use within society is constantly changing, we want the children to confidently use a range of technologies and understand how these can support their learning. As a result, during their time at Leatherhead Trinity, children receive a weekly computing lesson, whilst also having opportunities to use their skills and embed their understanding in other subject areas.
