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:
- Computer Science e.g. coding, algorithms and programming
- Information Technology e.g. processing and presenting data
- 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, class laptop and iPad trolleys. Each class also uses an Interactive Whiteboard.
