The Digital Leaders of Sudbourne Primary

COMPUTING AND TECHNOLOGY AT SUDBOURNE

 

Computing and Technology encompasses every part of modern life and it is important that our children are taught how to use these tools and more importantly, how to use them safely.

At Sudbourne, equipment such as iPads, digital cameras, Beebots, Probots, Easispeaks, video cameras, animation kits, webcams and digital microscopes are used to enhance the teaching and learning of computing and technology across the curriculum.

Weekly focus sessions in our computing suite are used to teach the basic skills and computer science programming objectives from the new curriculum.  Skills such as coding, de-bugging, blogging and creating video animations are all taught using the computers, iPads and laptops.

At Sudbourne, we acknowledge the need to ensure that all pupils are responsible and safe users of the World Wide Web and other communication technologies.  By doing this, the school offers a safe online environment through filtered internet access provided by London Grid for Learning (LGFL), children are regularly taught about safety and online issues and once a year we provide a whole school safety event for pupils and parents.

We now have a talented team of digital leaders who have been recruited from Year 5, to support the learning of computing and technology at Sudbourne.  Their role is to assist the use of technology across the school with tech support, training and professional development for pupils and staff.

Computing and technology allow us to embed all areas of the curriculum in a creative and stimulating way, firing enthusiasm and learning to the max!
