Computing

At Archbishop Benson we are incredibly lucky to have a set of 32 ipads as well as ‘The Hub’- a state of the art Computer suite equipped with 30 desktops. All of our classrooms are set up with interactive whiteboards and pupils have access to sets of tablets. Pupils and parents have access to our VLE (virtual learning environment) via the school website where they can visit their class page in order to link learning in school to learning at home! We understand that computers are part of our everyday lives and we aim to equip our pupils with the skills and know how to use them so they can become responsible digital citizens.

Children will be taught the three aspects of the computing curriculum: computer science (CS), information technology (IT) and digital literacy (DL). Computer science involves programming and children learning how to solve problems they encounter using trial and error. Information technology focuses on finding and retrieving reliable information online. Digital Literacy incorporates learning about how to stay safe on line (E safety) and how to behave responsibly online. We follow the 5 Smart Rules for staying safe on line and embed e safety into Computing each term.
