Social Media The Parents Guide





As technology changes, computing at Lingfield is evolving all the time. With the aim of producing digitally resilient children, Computing is taught every week. Lessons include the three aspects of the National Curriculum:

  • Computer science;
  • Information technology
  • Digital literacy

The core of computing is computer science, in which pupils are taught the principles of information and computation, how digital systems work and how to put this knowledge to use through programming. Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils will be equipped to use information technology to create programs, systems and a range of content. Computing also ensures that pupils become digitally literate - able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through information and communication technology at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.

At Lingfield, we strive to meet this aim using a range of equipment; from bee-bots to laptops and from cameras to interactive screens. As more devices become available, we hope to see technology being used in every classroom.
