Computing

Computing at Cookridge Holy Trinity

At Cookridge Holy Trinity Primary school we value the importance of Computing as an important life skill and it is a part of everyday life for us at Holy Trinity. We are fortunate to have 30 children laptops, Ipads, Chromebooks, Beebots and Probots which allow us to learn vital IT skills in our computing lessons as well as enhancing our learning in other curriculum areas.

Computing is changing the lives of everyone. Through teaching Computing we equip children to participate in a rapidly-changing world where work and leisure activities are increasingly transformed by technology. We enable them to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information. We also focus on developing the skills necessary for children to be able to use information in a discriminating and effective way. IT skills are a major factor in enabling children to be confident, creative and independent learners. We teach Computing using the Chris Quigley Essentials scheme of learning.

The aims of Computing at Cookridge Holy Trinity:

  • Competence in coding for a variety of practical and inventice purposes, including the application of ideas within other subjects.
  • The ability to connect with others safely and respectfully, understanding the need to act within the law and with moral and ethical integrity.
  • An understanding of the connected nature of devices.
  • The ability to communicate ideas well by using applications and devices throughout the curriculum.
  • The ability to connect, organise and manipulate data effectively.
