At Langdale School we believe in preparing our pupils to become responsible digital citizens. Computing is taught as a stand alone subject but is also taught through integration with other subjects. Children have access to a range of devices such as laptops, ipads, digital cameras and interactive whiteboards.
Underpinning all our computing work is the importance placed on e-safety. Each year starts with a unit covering the topic at an appropriate level. We revisit the topic during the year on Safer Internet Day. Children enjoy using computers for a variety of tasks such as coding using Scratch, presenting ideas in Word or as a PowerPoint and Film making.
The children in Key Stages 1 and 2 all have their own Microsoft Teams accounts. Staff use this to set homework and remote learning. Time is spent in school ensuring all children know how to use their accounts and support for parents is offered.
