Computing at Christ Church
At Christ Church, we aim for our children to confidently use and apply information technology skills to support and extend their learning. We develop a culture where the use of ICT (information, communication and technology) becomes second nature to our pupils, thus ensuring they are ready and able to embrace the technological advances of the future.
Children in all Key Stages have access to a bank of 15 shared laptops, 28 shared iPads and a small bank of computers. The children are taught using Interactive whiteboards, digital cameras, and numerous other technologies to support and enhance their learning in other subjects.
Within our computing curriculum there is a key emphasis on learning key skills; these will include programming, debugging and exchanging information. Our children are taught how to access information, evaluate its suitability, store it, share it with others and tailor it to meet their own needs. Another essential part of the curriculum is developing Digital Literacy, with children learning how to use ICT safely and confidently but in school and at home. At regular points throughout the year children undertake e-safety sessions on topics such as cyberbullying or keeping information safe.
