At Buglawton Primary School, we believe that computing is an integral part of preparing children to live in a world where technology is continuously and rapidly evolving. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science and design and technology; and is used as part of our creative curriculum throughout all subjects to encourage the children to work creatively. Computing also ensures that pupils increase their knowledge and develop their skills to become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world. We are lucky to have laptop and iPad trollies, each containing 30, to allow all children in each class access to up to date technology.
All children from EYFS through to Year 6 follow a scheme of work that is in line with the national curriculum and is relevant to the world in which they live. We consciously ensure that both children and parents are up to date with E-Safety. E-Safety is fed into all computing lessons.
Safer Internet Day
On Tuesday 11th February, the whole school participated in Safer Internet Day which is a nationwide incentive aimed at raising the profile of e-Safety across schools and other institutions. Following an assembly to launch this year's theme of Online Identity, each class completed activities relating to a different element of online safety which they then presented to the school in an assembly later in the day. Our school is part of a wide range of schools that took part and the day was a huge success in bringing the school together as a community. Please have a look at some photos of the day below.
