WELCOME to Welford Primary School

At Welford we aim to provide a challenging, relevant and enjoyable Computing curriculum which enables children to be ready for the challenges and opportunities offered by our technologically-rich world.

To help us do this we follow the National Curriculum which breaks down the subject into three areas:

  1. Computer Science e.g. coding, algorithms and programming
  2. Information Technology e.g. processing and presenting data
  3. Digital Literacy e.g. how to interact safely with technology.

This is achieved through the delivery of a combination of cross curricular and discrete learning units using a variety of software. We are currently supported in Computer Science by an external expert who is developing the skills of class teachers and children across the school.

Welford has a great range of hardware to support learning in Computing including a dedicated Computing Suite, 2 class laptop trolleys and 2 class iPad trolleys. Each class also has its own computer and an Interactive Whiteboard.
