Pilsley C of E School

Computing

In an ever changing modern society, computing skills are incredibly valuable. Computing skills are closely linked to other subjects: Maths, Science and Design Technology in particular. Pilsley has a set of laptops and an ipad per class that the children are encouraged to use. Each classroom is also fitted with an interactive whiteboard to enhance children's learning across the curriculum.

 

Computing opportunities are made, where appropriate, through the Cornerstones scheme. This gives the children an audience and a purpose for their computing work. For example, using scratch to create a magical map during the Alchemy Island topic or creating a database of ocean animals for Blue Abyss.

 

E-safety is a top priority in both our computing and PSHE curriculum. Children are taught to be responsible online and how to respond to inappropriate content.

 

We also have a year 6 Digital Leader who is in charge of computing matters at Pilsley. This encourages the children to take responsibility for our computing equipment and to problem solve day to day.

We are currently experiencing an unprecedented situation with the rapidly changing advice and guidance around Covid-19. We would like to keep parents and carers as up to date as possible by directing them to the following means of information.
