At Harrington Hill we value computing and recognise the subject’s importance and significance. Our children are growing up in an ICT-rich environment which means they need the opportunities to experience and develop their skills to support them in the future. Children are taught and develop a wide range of computing skills through their weekly lessons.
As you can see from our computing overview, in EYFS the children are taught essential keyboard and mouse skills; in year two they begin developing their coding skills; in year three they will learn about different uses of technology; in year four the children become network engineers; in year five they are architects and by year six the children are confident coders and movie makers. As well as this, technology is fed through other subjects, for example through researching in Science, creating explanation videos in Maths and story boards and animations in English.
At Harrington Hill, we take online safety very seriously and we are committed to educating our children about how they can stay safe online. We also work hard to support our families on any issues they face in the online world by publishing a range of information on our website and inviting parents to attend workshops.
