At St. James’ we believe that in our technology rich lives, it is crucial that our children are curious and confident when using ICT. We use computing to enable our pupils to be active participants in their learning and to develop skills for the future


.  We focus on the following: 

  • Information technology is about the use of computers for functional purposes, such as collecting and presenting information, or using search technology. 

  • Digital literacy is about the safe and responsible use of technology, including recognising its advantages for collaboration or communication. 

  • Computer science helps children of all ages to understand how computers and networks work. It gives all children the opportunity to learn basic computer programming, from simple floor robots in Reception, Years 1 and 2, right up to creating on-screen computer games and programmes by Year 6, using programming software such as Scratch. 

We are continually supporting the children to stay safe online both at home and school and are supported through our work with the local police; safer internet days and GHLL Team.
