Computing is taught across the school both discreetly and through cross-curricular lessons and there is always an excited buzz from the children around any Computing related lessons. Our main aims are to equip children with the skills and knowledge to confidently use computers and other technology to support their learning and creativity. Throughout the year, the children study coding, computing skills, online safety (through Google's 'Be Internet Legends' scheme), multimedia and how technology is used in our lives and the wider world. As many children are already confident with the equipment, it is a fantastic way to support other lessons, such as, English and topic lessons.
At St Francis, we pride ourselves on keeping up to date with the ever-changing world of technology and aim to keep children and parents well-informed on how best to stay safe online. The essential skills delivered in online safety lessons ensure that our children will be smart and safe internet users as they grow up.
