Computing at Blair Peach Primary School
Children at Blair Peach Primary School have access to a wide range of computing equipment. There are two Computing Suites with pupil iPads available in KS1 and KS2. The Computing Curriculum is taught around a tight focus on e-Safety. All Year groups commence their learning with this and it is reinforced with additional time during e-Safety week in February. Pupil surveys, parent surveys and parent workshops give a unified, layered approach, to a modern concern facing all families.
Blair Peach teaching of the new Computing Curriculum, tackles Computer Science using Scratch, Digital Literacy and Computational Thinking. Our children are taught how to access information, evaluate its suitability, store it, share it with others and tailor it to meet their own needs.
Blair Peach aims to ensure that pupils become equipped to use information technology to create programs. They will become digitally literate and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology – working towards a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
