Computing (Primary)

Computing at Starbank will help to develop pupils’ understanding of the concepts, practices and perspectives that underpin programming and other aspects of computer science.  Pupils are encouraged to develop a confident and safe approach to Computing and the use of ICT, with the understanding of the capabilities and flexibility of their resources.

We provide opportunities for creative and collaborative project work in which pupils can acquire the information technology skills they will need in their life at home, in further education and places of work. Through our Computing curriculum, we will also help pupils to understand the implications of technology for individuals and society as they become digitally literate.
