The use of information and communication technology and computing is an integral part of the national curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Computers, tablets, programmable robots, digital and video cameras are a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information. At St Laurence Church of England Primary School we recognise that pupils are entitled to quality hardware and software and a structured and progressive approach to the learning of the skills needed to enable them to use it effectively.
St Laurence Church of England Primary School has invested in a computing programme (Purple Mash) that has open-ended tools that allow children's creativity to flourish. Children can create expressive multi-media stories, make their own games or compose their own music through the exploration of technology and tools. Computing will be planned in line with Purple Mash and the national curriculum.
