Computing

 

At Earlsfield Primary School we are aware that children need to be able to participate effectively in a digital world. For the majority of us computers are part of our every-day life and in many ways essential to our work and home life.

We are well resourced with Laptops (Windows and Macs) and Ipads. The building has wireless access that allows the children greater opportunities to use the hardware across a range of subjects and not be limited to the time constraints that a  timetables IT suite brings.


Children at Earlsfield experience an exciting and rigorous curriculum that addresses the challenges and opportunities offered by the technologically rich world we live in. Computing is concerned not only with how computers and computer systems work but how they are designed and programmed. The children will gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds which provides insights into many areas of the curriculum.

In Key Stage 1 children will be taught to understand how algorithms are implemented as programs on digital devices. They will create and debug their own simple programmes using logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs. We will teach them to recognise common uses of information technology beyond school and create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content. Children will be taught to use these technologies safely and respectfully, ensuring their personal information is kept private but also who to contact if they are concerned about content on the internet or other online technologies.

In addition Key Stage 2 children will be taught to design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information; also using logical reasoning to explain how some simple algorithms work and to detect and correct errors. They will be taught to understand computer networks including the internet and how they provide multiple services. In addition we will cover the safe, respectful and responsible use of technology and how to recognise unacceptable behaviour whilst exploring a range of ways to report concerns about content and contact.

We run workshops for parents on Internet Safety to outline the dangers that our young children face. There is a great deal of guidance available. As a school we have selected the following articles which provide advice for parents. Please note that children at primary school should not have access to Facebook or Instagram and that use of the internet should be closely monitored.
