The school is equipped with desk top computers, laptops and tablets which are used to support all areas of the curriculum. We use Purple Mash as a programme of study and annually run a series of E-Safety sessions for both children and parents. A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. Computing has deep links with mathematics, science, and design and technology, and provides insights into both natural and artificial systems. The core of computing 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 and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils 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 linked through a Keswick School broadband network with other primary schools in our cluster, facilitating exchange of information and access via email, and enabling speedier IT problem-solving locally. We have Smartboards in each teaching area to add sparkle to our lessons.
