At Maylandsea Primary School, we believe Computing is an area in which all children can excel and express themselves in both a logical and creative way.
Given the progression and development of technology and the opportunities for children to access these more freely, the curriculum has been updated to allow the children to use technology both inside and outside school.
A class set of laptops are used regularly by classes to work alongside a computer suite which provides access for all students.
The school have purchased a software programme called Purple Mash, which has a continuous and progressive curriculum from EYFS to Year 6, covering all areas including: word processing, touch typing, presentations, media and data handling.
There are a multitude of careers that can be accessed through computing and many children who sometimes find core subjects harder to understand, excel in a computing environment.
