Computing at St Georges

Computing at St. George's

 

In 2014 the Government's new National Curriculum began to be statutory in schools. At St. George's, we integrate Computing where possible into other lessons, so that it becomes a natural tool for supporting children's learning.

Some examples of the technology that we currently use include: 

  • Teaching children to code using Scratch - St. George's had introduced this before the Government recommended the reintroduction of programming to schools.
  • 32 iPads to enhance provision of computer technology. 
  • Digital photography, including editing and doodling on photos using both Paint applications and photo editing applications.
  • Desktop PCs across Reception and Key Stage One for classroom use.
  • Using Bee-bot application to deliver the direction part of maths.
  • Using Microsoft Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint & Publisher to support our creative curriculum.
  • Teaching safe searching and E-safety using Windows and Apple-based technology.
  • Green-screen video filming using the Do Ink Application.

At St George's, we believe that a creative curriculum is one that is never taught without being linked to another aspect of our learning. By linking Computing with life, our children are better able to see the real use of the taught skills and apply them effectively both inside and outside the classroom.

Check out our Pupils Staying Safe area and Parents Keeping Safe from Harm areas of the website for further information on ESafety. 

Assessment and Progression in Computing - Here at St George's we use a range of resources to support the teaching of Computing, including planning materials from the WessexBFL

Children's Safe Search Engines

As part of our E-Safety teaching we ensure that we use safe search engines that are suitable for children. Here are some examples of the different search engines that are available. Please have a look and encourage your child to use these when searching the Internet at home.

We are committed to making on-going improvements to our E-safeguarding provision within school. We are registered with 360 degree E-Safe and regularly review and evaluate the progress we are making. We are proud to have received this certificate which recognises our commitment. Further information can be found at: http://www.360safe.org.uk
