At Ireby, computing is considered to be a vital part of supporting our children to become citizens of the future and enable our Christian vision, 'created to do good'. To support their learning, children in the EYFS and KS 1 have full access to IPADs, where they learn to understand algorithms, logical reasoning, how to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve data as well as how to stay safe in a technological world.

In Key Stage 2, every child has their own personal laptop. This allows them to access technology across the curriculum. We use Microsoft TEAMs to support communication which means that, even when at home, children can access their learning.

Children also learn the full range of computing skills using programs such as Microbit, Scratch and Sonic Pi. Internet safety is woven into all lessons and is often discussed as a starter for computing lessons.

We have a full range of cameras and video cameras as well as editing software which allows us to use use film and photography across our curriculum.

Our teaching of computing is supported by the resource Kapow. Click on the icon to find out more.
