Computing is embedded in our everyday lives. At Laleham we know the importance of fostering our children’s passion and thirst for technology and so provide them with the skills and learning they need to become confident, capable and responsible users of a wide range of technological equipment.
Each week, pupils in KS1 and KS2 receive a dedicated Computing lesson where we develop skills in the three aspects of the new computing curriculum: computer science, information technology and digital literacy.
We have a wireless network throughout the school which enables us to use mobile trollies with laptops for ‘in-class’ teaching of Computing. We have a full class set of high quality laptops, allowing one pupil per computer and every classroom is fitted with an interactive touch screen whiteboard, providing a highly engaging way of teaching skills and concepts. We encourage the use of laptops in many areas of the curriculum and provide opportunities where the children can work together on a particular skill or projects linked to other subjects.
A high priority for us is safeguarding children; E-Safety is taught to every pupil across the school and is reinforced throughout all of our Computing units.
