Computing

As computing underpins today's modern lifestyle, it is essential that all children gain the confidence and ability to cope with the challenge of a rapidly developing and changing technological world. At Linthorpe Primary we use computers and handheld technology to enhance and extend our children's learning across the whole curriculum. Staff and children have the resources and capability to access a wide range of devices, from PCs to ipads, in order to support whole class and independent learning. Within a safe learning environment children are taught to recognise the value of computing for themselves and others, whilst being aware of its advantages and limitations.
 

At Linthorpe Community Primary School we care greatly about keeping our children safe, both at school and out in the wider world. Internet safety, or esafety as it is often called, is a large part of our computing curriculum and our everyday teaching. A large part of that esafety role is also down to parents. We encourage and work in partnership with parents to ensure that their computers and mobile devices are safe for our young people to use. In this way we can ensure that we nurture healthy, positive, worldly wise children that know how to keep themselves and others safe.

Throughout the year we provide various clubs that allow children to develop a deeper interest and understanding of different areas of the computing curriculum. These clubs include coding, animation and digital artwork.
