Computing is very much an integral part of the SMSP ethos and we pride ourselves on our comprehensive, innovative and safe provision. Teachers make extensive use of ICT in their daily teaching and children personally engage with ICT throughout the curriculum. Access is provided through a number of lapbanks, iPads, class computers and a bank of desktop PCs.
In line with the new Computing curriculum, children learn how modern technology can be used to communicate, collaborate, create and control through a varied and exciting scheme of work. Younger children are given hands-on experience with products such as Bee-bots, digital cameras, remote controlled cars and touch-screen technology. Further up in the school, children have the opportunity to create digital artwork and videos; use the Internet to research and publish work; collect, analyse and present data using a range of software; and design and program their own games and apps.
