“Learning and Achieving Together”
We teach and apply computer skills through cross-curricular activities and experiences. The school has a robust Acceptable User Policy and Internet Policy. The school follows the DfE programmes of study for computing. The learning Platform is a rich and safe source of interesting courses and publications. The school teaches coding using Purple Mash as well as a variety of resources such as BeeBots.
