At Cogenhoe Primary School we provide the pupils with a high-quality computing education that equips them with skills in computational thinking and the creativity to understand and cope with the technological changing world.
The core of our computing lessons is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems that include a range of content. We aim for our pupils to become digitally literate, so that they are able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology.
For further information, please see the Safeguarding & E-Safety section of our website or speak to Miss Noble our E-Safety & Computing Lead.
Whilst, as a school we do not promote the websites that are mentioned in this next video, there are some very good tips for parents to ensure that pupils are kept safe online.
Please open the documents below for further information in relation to E-safety. a copy of our policy can be obtained from the office.
We encourage the links between Computing and all areas of the curriculum as a way to inspire and motivate the pupils and allow them the opportunity to apply the skills that they learn during their Computing lessons. The school is equipped with iPads, laptops and PCs as well as a range of control devices that the pupils enjoy using as a way of finding out information as well as presenting skills they have developed.
