Computing

As you are already aware, computing is an increasingly important part of everyday life. Technology is commonplace in the lives of the children at St Silas Primary School. Each child is growing up in a digital world. Therefore, it is essential that all our children are able to use any technology they have access to effectively and safely, both online and off.

Throughout their time at St Silas Primary School, the children will have access to a wide range of technologies from data loggers, (usually used in Science and Maths) to Chromebooks. This will help to engage and motivate them in their learning. Should parents have any questions about the devices, software and websites that are used in school please feel free to speak to Mr Hadwin, or any of the staff, and we will be able to help you and point you in the right direction.

When asked recently, a class of eight and nine year olds in our school, stated that they knew much more about technology and were better at using it than their parents or carers at home.

The children regularly receive information, in class and in assemblies and workshops, about staying safe online and learn new skills, each week, as part of the Computing curriculum. However, should you want to find out more, feel free to ask.
