Computing

The Computing curriculum taught at Putnoe Primary prepares pupils to participate in a world immersed in digital technologies.  From Foundation Stage to Upper Key Stage 2, children use a wide range of ICT tools to find, explore, analyse, exchange and present information in a responsible and creative way. 

As part of this curriculum, we ensure children learn how to be ‘e-safe’.  The school acknowledges that computing and e-learning makes a massive contribution to all aspects of school life.  As a result of these beliefs, we believe that all children should be given opportunities to engage in a broad computing curriculum that ensures they are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

We have a new state of the art ICT suite with thirty computers plus printers which are all networked. Children also have access to laptops in classrooms; the Foundation Stage have a set of 16.  Another 96 laptops are shared between Years 1 to 6 to support the use of ICT across the curriculum.  Our fully equipped Media suite also houses our school radio station. There are interactive whiteboards and data projectors which are used regularly as teaching tools in all classrooms.
