The Computing curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils can understand and apply the most important principles and concepts of Computer Science, Digital Literacy and Information Technology.
We aim for our pupils to be confident, competent and discerning users of digital technology, which will prepare them for participation in a rapidly changing world. In order to equip our pupils for this, we develop their critical thinking skills and encourage an exposure to a range of technology so that they may adapt to new technologies as they arise.
At St. Andrew’s we have a vast array of resources available to develop the skills of our pupils.
Along with our computer suite and a 3-D printer, all of our Junior pupils have access to their own 1-1 devices which are utilised across the curriculum. Pupils in our Infant classes have access to class sets of laptops and iPads and LearnPad tablets are utilised in our Pre-School classes. We use hardware such as cameras, animation kits and programmable robots to help support and enhance the enjoyment of learning for all.
