Computing

Computing At Cookham Dean

Computing enriches, modernises and supports all aspects of our school’s curriculum.

Children’s learning is made more rewarding and inspirational by using ICT.  We believe children’s confidence and progress in their computing skills is essential for them to maximise their learning in the curriculum and to prepare them for the challenge of a rapidly developing and changing technological world.

Our Vision of Computing

At Cookham Dean Primary  School we want both staff and pupils to be confident and competent in the use of computers in all areas of the curriculum.

 

  • All teachers will have resources, knowledge and enthusiasm to support their teaching.
  • Computing will be taught as a discrete topic.
  • Pupils will have a networked technology infrastructure which ensures access in each class and they will be able to use these skills to support their learning in any teaching area throughout the school.
  • We will use our virtual learning environment (Purple Mash) to support pupils’ learning away from school.
  • Displays will demonstrate computing skill 
  • Children will enjoy computing
  • Children will encourage their peers through our Computer Ranger scheme.

 

We feel that technology can be used to make learning both more enjoyable and more effective and that pupils and staff will benefit through learning with technology.

We aim to keep pace with educational developments in this area and have a commitment to teachers having the necessary tools e.g. laptops and interactive whiteboards and training to do their jobs effectively.
