Computing

Computing is changing the lives of everyone. Through our teaching of Computing at Stanton Road, we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. We enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way. Computing skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners.

In addition to this, we have also developed a rolling e-safety programme which teaches the children about the risks of the internet and social networks at an age-appropriate level.

Computing skills are taught through discrete lesson as well as through cross-curricular topic links.
