Computing

Curriculum Overview

At St Julie,  Computing is taught weekly in each class. It is a popular subject, with lessons which  are fun and engaging. Computing is taught using either ipads or on the Apple Macs in the Computer suite. In addition to learning the formal skills of the Computing curriculum, children are encouraged to apply their knowledge in all subjects across the curriculum using their imaginations to log data, create games, blogs, videos and presentations. 

The computing curriculum is divided into three areas: Computer Science, Digital Literacy and information technology. E-safety is a strand of Computing which is embedded into all units that are taught.We use Eaware software to assess the knowledge of all year groups at the start of September to ensure their Safe & responsible use of IT, and to assess their awareness of subjects related to Esafety and staying safe online. Parents you can take the assessment too!
