Welcome to Computing at Studfall Junior Academy
The use of information and communication technology is an integral part of the national curriculum and is a key skill for everyday life. Computers, tablets, programmable robots, digital and video cameras are a few of the tools that can be used to acquire, organise, store, manipulate, interpret, communicate and present information.
At Studfall, we recognise that pupils are entitled to quality hardware and software and a structured and progressive approach to the learning of the skills needed to enable them to use it effectively.
Fundamental to this work is a core understanding of the safe use and practices that need to be understood by all because of the potential dangers that exist in the online world. Children are taught what is, and is not, acceptable and what to do if they are not happy or comfortable with any online content. Please see our e-safety page for more information.
