Computing

Computing Intent Statement

At Alderbrook we aspire for our pupils to be confident and safe users of technology. Technology will play a pivotal part in our children’s educational and personal lives. Therefore, we want to model and educate our pupils on how to use technology positively, responsibly and safely. We want our pupils to be creators; they will have the opportunity to combine our school values and broad curriculum by encompassing computer science, information technology and digital literacy to reflect this. We want our pupils to understand that there is always a choice with using technology and as a school we utilise technology to model positive use.

Alderbrook Computing Curriculum

We are well-resourced with iPads, chrome books, laptops, interactive whiteboards and we have the use of a fabulous Mac computer suite.  On top of this, we are fortunate to have the support and expertise of the City Learning Centre (CLC) who are based on site and are available to support our staff or take lessons for our pupils to ensure they have the very best computing curriculum available to them. The CLC provide coding lessons for all key stage 1 and key stage 2 pupils across the school year. 

Ensuring that our pupils are safe using the internet is a key priority and E-safety is integral at our school. As well as being taught about the dangers of using the internet during our annual E-safety week, all pupils and staff follow a code of conduct for using technology appropriately.
