Lead Teacher – Mr Jones
Computing surrounds us every day in a digital age and allows learners to develop creativity to understand and change the world through technology.
At Hertford St. Andrew we believe that all children should be confident and safe with their use of technology and will develop a great sense of achievement when developing their skills in Computer Science. The core areas that are taught across the curriculum are: Programming, problem solving, writing algorithms, databases, computer networks, computer hardware and processing, digital literacy, using and evaluating ICT, the Internet and E-safety.
Children are equipped to learn with our range of laptops, iPads and printing devices on our wireless network. Children are able to express themselves and develop their ideas by creating computer programs, video games, websites, blogs, 3D models, e-books and digital art. They will also learn word processing, spreadsheet and database skills as well as how the Internet works. When learning about the Internet, we have developed an extensive E-safety curriculum to help ensure the safeguarding of children online. We also celebrate Safer Internet Day. These computing skills allow children to be creative, produce quality outcomes they can be proud of, support other subjects and become 21st century digital learners.
