Vision for Computing
At All Saints it is our aim to become a leading school for ICT and Computing. We have placed a great emphasis on providing the children of All Saints with high quality, rewarding and inspiring opportunities to learn new skills. Through the use of VR technology, programmable robots, a wide range of iPad apps such as: Green Screen, Swift, iMovie, Garageband and much more, all the staff are determined to bring our curriculum to life through Computing. Check out the gallery to see how we have used Computing across our Journey of Discovery
What is new?
We have invested in staff training on the use of our new tech gadgets. Our staff are now experts in the use of our new Virtual Reality headsets, our Sphero robots and an every growing range of educational apps.
Last year we introduced a Digital Leader team. This year, we have done this same. The team consists of six Year 6 pupils. They are pupils who have identified themselves as having a keen interest computing, technology and helping others. There responsibilities include: setting up the hall technology, running a computing club for KS1, testing out new educational apps and websites, training other staff and children in the use of our new tech and also visiting tech companies such as: Apple, to find out how we can keep up with the ever-changing world of technology
1) Ongoing support staff training - we must ensure that all our staff are experts in the use of a wide range of computing programs, apps and devices to be able to provide the children of All Saints with an inspiring Computing Curriculum.
2) E-safety - in this fast moving world of social media and online activity, it is essential that we look for the best ways to teach our young children about key messages regarding e-safety. We must teach them how to be secure online, how to be safe and how to conduct themselves in the wider online community. We deliver e-safety sessions using videos, images, stories and scenarios to ensure the children know what it means to make the right online choices and to be safe.
3) Links with local schools – at All Saints we are continuously working with all school to provide the best for our children. This year, we want to take this one step further and develop links with other schools to further enhance our computing curriculum and to further support other schools developing their computing curriculum.
