Computing

When pupils leave Flora Gardens Primary School, we aim for them to be digital creators, effective communicators and responsible citizens.  We recognise the importance of Computing as a lifelong learning tool and key skill in an ever-evolving digital world.

Computing is taught in a variety of ways at Flora Gardens; specific skills are taught during Computing lessons using our suite of desktop computers or iPads; however, Computing teaching also takes place using a cross-curricular approach through our topics of study. This allows children to transfer their skills and use technology for a real purpose, thereby seeing Computing as an integral component of all learning which is linked to the real world.  Our Curriculum Overviews for each year level outline which aspects of the Computing curriculum are taught at which stage.

Embedding all of our Computing teaching is E-Safety so that pupils have the knowledge, skills and understanding to be safe and responsible online – Click Here for guidance from the London Grid for Learning.
