Computing and IT
At The Avenue Primary School we try to use computers and associated technologies to enhance our curriculum and help children learn key skills.
We follow the National Curriculum programmes of study.
Classes are timetabled for a minimum of three sessions per week in our Computer Suite to develop their computing skills.
We follow the Cornerstones schemes of work and these include opportunities for computing and Information Technology. Children will learn skills across a range of topics including coding and programming. There is also opportunity for them to develop and refine other computer life skills such as typing, word processing, data handling, creating and editing pictures.
The children, guided by the staff, are actively engaged in using the Internet in an effective way, including how to keep safe, protect personal information and about cyber-bullying.
