St Andrew's School


The Computing curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils can understand and apply the most important principles and concepts of Computer Science, Digital Literacy and Information Technology.

We aim for our pupils to be confident, competent and discerning users of digital technology, which will prepare them for participation in a rapidly changing world. In order to equip our pupils for this, we develop their critical thinking skills and encourage an exposure to a range of technology so that they may adapt to new technologies as they arise.

At St. Andrew’s we have a vast array of resources available to develop the skills of our pupils.

All of our Year 1-Year 6 pupils have access to their own 1-1 devices which are utilised across the curriculum. Pupils in our Reception classes have access to class sets of  iPads and LearnPad tablets are utilised in our Pre-School classes. We use hardware such as cameras, animation kits and programmable robots to help support and enhance the enjoyment of learning for all.

Digital Leaders are introduced in Year 4. A Digital Leader is a pupil who is part of the Digital Team within St. Andrew's, whose role it is to support the use and to further the development of ICT in school. Pupils are given training and support to develop specific areas of ICT expertise. Once a pupil gains an area of expertise, staff may then request the use of the Digital Leader to offer assistance to their peers in the classroom. Our Digital Leaders also run workshops for our younger pupils.
