A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world.
Primary National Curriculum
At Morland Area C of E School we embrace a computing curriculum that reflects the increasing role played by technology in all aspects of society. Confident, creative and productive use of this technology is an essential skill for life. We recognise that ICT capability is not just a set of basic skills but can be used to support logical reasoning and problem solving, analysis, research and design across all aspects of the curriculum.
Our computing curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils:
Our commitment to new and emerging technologies enables children to access state of the art
equipment to enhance their learning including computers, laptops, netbooks and ipads - reflective of the range of technology beyond school. In Key Stage Two all pupils have their own IPad for use across the curriculum and access to an online learning platform, Purplemash, which supports all elements of the curriculum. Apple technology is used across the curriculum, with classes engaging in their learning through airplay, apple classroom and use of a wide-range of APPs. Children are encouraged to apply their skills in computing across the curriculum and to appreciate how computers are applied to support a whole range of tasks in life after school.
In Early Years and Key Stage One, children have access to IPads alongside a wide range of technology to support their learning across the curriculum, e.g. Beebots for coding and headphone stations for sound.
We are very proud of our technological school. Please see below for useful links and further information about our curriculum.
