Computing

Bishop’s Primary computing education prepares our children with the knowledge, skills and understanding, to develop thinking and be creative using technology.

Our computing curriculum is valued by staff and pupils as a means of cross-curricular learning. The pupils have access to a range of programmes which allow them to learn new skills to equip them for their future. Computing skills are taught progressively throughout school, ensuring that our pupils leave at the end of Year 6 with the computing skills that they will need to be effective learners and members of society. We believe that the safety of our pupils online is of vital importance, therefore E-safety is taught at an appropriate level throughout the school. Pupils are made aware of the rules for safe use of the internet.

Our curriculum ensures that our pupils become digitally literate; they are able to develop their ideas through information and communication technology. We use the Purple Mash website to enhance our pupils’ knowledge in a fun and creative way. It is an award-winning website for nursery and primary school children. Purple Mash is a wonderful resource to support children’s learning both in and beyond the classroom.

Our pupils are given the skills at a suitable level to prepare them to be active participants in a ever evolving digital world.
