This is taught as a discrete subject, as well as being used to support cross-curricular learning. Pupils are taught a range of knowledge and skills. They use word-processing, multimedia, graphics, data handling and modelling software. Children have good access to computers, laptop banks, digital cameras and programmable toys.
They are also taught how to code, create apps and programmes, debug programmes and understand how digital systems work.
We have developed our own digital leaders who are able to sort out a range of low level technical issues, allowing lessons to go smoothly.
We are supported in our delivery of the computing curriculum by Turn It On and are lucky enough to have a dedicated computing teacher, Mr Black, who works across the school.
In our ever changing world it is vital that we keep children safe and keeping children safe online forms a large part of our safeguarding responsibilities.
We have our own E safety squad, who are a group of children who champion e safety, discuss issues with children and support Mr Walker to ensure that keeping safe online is always a high priority.
Each half term we have a dedicated e safety day to ensure that children are constantly being reminded about the importance of staying safe in the digital world.
Staff and parents also have regular updates to ensure that we are all as up to date we can be.
Computing and E safety at Elfrida is led by Mr Walker
