The Russell School

Aim High, Have Courage, Be Kind

Computing

We are fortunate to have a well resourced computer suite, with 30 computers and an interactive whiteboard.  Each class has an interactive whiteboard which is used to enhance learning throughout the curriculum.

We aim to teach pupils to use equipment and software confidently and purposefully through the computing curriculum, which focuses more directly on coding and programming skills.  In addition to coding, children are taught how to use green screen technology, take part in animation sessions, and engage with technology.

With these skills our pupils use ICT to enhance their learning across all areas of the curriculum. The Russell School believes that the Internet offers a valuable resource for teachers and children and it is recognised that there are risks that children may gain access to material that is inappropriate. The E Safety and Acceptable Use Policy sets out the measures taken to minimise these risks, and we follow the ‘Smile and Stay Safe’ e-safety scheme.
