Computing

At Colerne CE School we believe that effective use of computing is a life skill that will be part of the learner’s future both at work and home. The constant innovations in computing mean that we are equipping children for a future where technology will be hugely different in both form and application. To that end we strive to embed computing so that it allows learners to be creative, to work collaboratively and to solve problems.
 
Computing is embedded into teaching and learning across the whole curriculum. Children are given the opportunities to choose and use hardware and software to meet their needs and enhance their learning experience.
 
We have worked hard over the years to ensure children and staff at Colerne have access to good quality resources that are as up to date as we can get. Currently we have:

 

  • An efficient wireless network supplying internet access across the school
  • Interactive whiteboards in every teaching room
  • Three trolleys of laptops
  • One trolley of iPads
  • Three iMacs
  • Various digital cameras
  • Selection of control hardware including Beebots, Probots and Lego We-Do
  • Variety of software that supports skills across the curriculum including word processing, music and art

 

Children are taught to be safe digital citizens through the use of our comprehensive e-safety curriculum. Preparing our children for a successful and safe online future is a key priority.
 
Digital skills such as modelling, control and programming are taught explicitly through the use of hardware and software. The children then apply these skills in a real context through their topic.
