Computing at Leatherhead Trinity
“To develop children’s experience and understanding of ICT, preparing them for the society of the future.”
Children at our school receive an imaginative and creative computing curriculum in which they are challenged, inspired and prepared for the digital world. Our teaching provides pupils with the skills, knowledge and confidence to use technology anywhere in the safest possible way. Our curriculum enables each individual to fulfil their potential to the highest possible standard and develop their understanding of technology in everyday life.
Computing is taught across three predominant areas: computer science, information technology and digital literacy. Purple Mash (a cloud-based platform) is used to support the teaching on the computing curriculum. Through this platform, the children are able to explore a wide range of age-appropriate creative software tools for coding, blogging and much more.
Teaching children about e-safety is a crucial part of the computing curriculum. In the early years, children have regular access to computing equipment in their continuous provision as well as some direct teaching through focus activities.
Children have equal access to a range of electronic devices and programs across all curriculum subjects to ensure children can explore, communicate and present their learning in a variety of ways. These include:
