Computing, Information & Technology

ICT is a key tool to enhance teaching, learning and progress at Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane. Here we embrace the opportunities technology gives us to engage our pupils across all the subject areas at each phase.

All our classes have Interactive Whiteboards, giving opportunities for bringing difficult concepts to life using visual and audio aids. Our Computing Suite enables the teaching of specific skills needed in our technology-rich world. Pupils also have access to iPads and tablets in class to embed their learning further.

At Philip Lane, we follow the National Curriculum for Computing, delivering a high-quality computing education to create active participants in a digital world. Informed by developments in ICT and best practice nationally,  we teach pupils to use their computational and creative thinking to solve problems; to use ICT to communicate effectively and to become digitally literate, preparing them for their future place in the twenty-first-century workplace.  

The computing curriculum covers four main strands:

  • Computer Science (Coding)

Children are taught to create, debug and follow simple algorithms; to understand inputs and outputs; to understand computer networks, including the internet.

  • Information Technology

Children are taught to use appropriate word processing software to create, store, retrieve and manipulate digital content.

  • Digital Literacy

Children are taught to instinctively apply their digital skills to a range of technology, recognising the common uses of technology both inside and outside school.

  • E-safety

Children are taught how to be responsible, safe users of technology. They are taught to recognise and report unsafe practices and to understand how to keep private information safe online. 

How can you help your child at home?

As with all subjects, the more practice your child has with using technology, the more accomplished they will become.  You could:

  • Sign up to your local library, where there a computer banks which your child can use free of charge
  • With your child, use the internet to research your child’s interests, discussing how to carry out an effective and safe search.
  • Download ‘scratch’ from https://scratch.mit.edu/ - free coding software suitable for years 5 and 6.
  • Download free iPad apps such as ‘hopscotch’ to help your child code. 
  • Log on to Khan Academy at https://www.khanacademy.org/computing for hundreds of free computing ideas.  You can make your own algorithms, learn about cryptography, and watch videos about how the internet works and ancient computing. 

E-Safety

E-Safety is an important part of keeping children safe. At HPAPL we have security measures in place, which are monitored to help safeguard pupils from potential dangers or unsuitable material. Any e-Safety incidents are recorded and managed in accordance with our e-Safety Policy. Our staff receive training and this is regularly updated. 

E-Safety is taught to all pupils explaining and demonstrating how to stay safe and behave appropriately online.

We can only be successful in keeping children safe online if we work with parents to ensure the e-Safety message is consistent. It is important that parents speak to their children about how they can keep safe and behave appropriately online.

For further information, please speak to a class teacher or alternatively our Computing Coordinator can be contacted via the main office. They will be happy to arrange an appointment for a more detailed conversation, support or guidance.
