At Marlow Church of England Infant school, we place a huge importance on the children’s learning of Computing Skills, Safety Online and Computing in everyday life.
The primary areas for learning are Computing Science, E-Safety and Digital Literacy, as well as Computing in everyday life.
Our learning programmes give children an opportunity to make the most of the technologies available to them, adapting to new ways of doing things as technologies evolve and limiting the risks to themselves and others in a digital environment.
Children develop IT capabilities as they learn to use digital tools effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively in all learning areas at school.
We provide a technology‐rich learning environment for our children and teachers. All classrooms have an interactive white board, a visualiser, tablet and access to a wired and wireless network to support the use of our Learnpads and PCs. Teachers and children have access to a wide range of software and hardware to enhance the curriculum and we enrich learning using PurpleMash, Lexia, Doodle Maths, 2Simple, StopMotion as well as igniting curiosity with handheld devices, such as Beebots.
The skills children learn are taught independently in computing lessons and put into practice in other lessons so that they learn the skills and then use them in meaningful contexts.
