At Pleasant Street Primary School, we believe that developing computing skills are vital for a successful future for our children. In an ever changing world where technology is often leading the way, we aim to develop confidence and enthusiasm to explore computational thinking and ensuring that all pupils;

  • can understand and apply the fundamental principles and concepts of computer science, including abstraction, logic, algorithms and data representation.
  • can analyse problems in computational terms, and have repeated practical experience of writing computer programs in order to solve such problems.
  • can evaluate and apply information technology, including new or unfamiliar technologies, analytically to solve problems.
  • are responsible, competent, confident and creative users of information and communication technology.

We ensure that all pupils are provided with activities and experiences that may not be accessible for all children. As a school we own our own set of virtual reality headsets; providing us opportunities to create and immersive learning environment across the curriculum. We also give children opportunities to use Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs to create products on our 3D printer.

We ensure that all children feel safe when they are online and the they are aware of the how to use new technology, including the internet, safely. As a school we believe that we have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of the children. Their well being is paramount.
