Computing

At Dersingham Primary School we aim to ensure that all our learners develop their technological skills and make use of technology effectively and safely. We aspire to be an effective and efficient school with technologically competent staff and learners.

 

We use the Rising Stars Switched On Computing scheme of work to support the teaching of the Computing National Curriculum. This ensures we are teaching the requirements of the National Curriculum, as well as providing opportunities for cross-curricular links.

 

We are a well resourced school with a variety of ICT equipment for use in lessons. Each Year Group has access to laptops and LearnPad tablets, as well as a variety of other equipment. We offer after school clubs for ICT and computer coding. We also have an enthusiastic Digital Leader Team, who support pupils and teachers with Coding and Online Safety training.

 

Online Safety is embedded into the Computing curriculum, as well as being covered in other parts of the curriculum.  We have an Online Safety Theme for each half term, meaning that the children learn about being safe online on a regular basis.
