Computing at West End aims to prepare our children for a constantly changing world driven by the internet and tablet devices.
We have a wide variety of technology and hardware across school. including: laptops, iPads, LBQ tablets and interactive whiteboards in all classrooms.
The progression of skills has been divided up into 3 different categories: Computer Science, Information Technology and Using Technology Safely.
- Computer Science – our children learn how to use logical reasoning to explain how simple programs work and use this to create and find errors within their own algorithms and programs.
- Information Technology – various skills around word processing, digital art (including music and film), presentation and spreadsheets are taught along with knowledge of technology and its uses.
- Using Technology Safely – standards are set in how to act appropriately within an online community, recognising acceptable and unacceptable behaviour and being able to identify a range of ways to report concerns about internet content and contact.
