Latchmere School aims to ensure all pupils are provided with a relevant, challenging, and enjoyable curriculum for computing: children are able to use computing as a tool to support and enhance learning across the curriculum. Children at Latchmere use computers for word processing, spreadsheets and databases, simulations, controlling and monitoring devices and coding. The school also offers opportunities for children to take part in extra-curricular activities in computing with lunch time clubs.
At Latchmere School, we believe that Computing is a vital subject which prepares children to live in a world where technology is an intrinsic part of everyday life. For this reason, we feel it is important that children are exposed to a range of computing disciplines relevant to the National Curriculum and the wider world.
Throughout the delivery of the computing curriculum, a consistent emphasis is placed on developing children’s understanding of how to use computing safely and responsibly.
