Welcome to Computing at Studfall Junior Academy
Sharon Murison is our Computing Lead
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.
Computing Curriculum Intent
At Studfall Junior Academy, we aim to provide a high-quality computing education, which will prepare our children for their future by giving them the opportunities to gain knowledge and develop skills that will equip them for an ever-changing digital world.
We nurture our children by aiming to make their Computing learning experiences exciting, engaging stimulating and interactive.
We believe in equipping our children with the knowledge and understanding of ICT and its increasing importance for their future at school, home and in employment.
Using a range of quality devices, children explore, observe, engage, solve problems and make exciting discoveries for themselves and in collaboration with others.
In line with the 2014 National Curriculum for Computing, our Computing Curriculum focuses on a progression of skills in Computer Science, Digital Literacy/E Safety and Information Technology to ensure that children become competent in safely using, as well as understanding technology.
Computing @ Key Stage 2 with D B Primary
This year, the children will be completing units of work from the DB Primary Computing Curriculum. These will include units from E Safety, Computer Science/Programming, Information Technology and Digital Literacy. The D B Learning Platform contains activities that focus on engaging learners and developing a deep understanding of the processes of all areas of the Computing Curriculum.

Studfall Junior Academy Computer Suite
We have a fantastic computer suite at the Junior Academy, which contains 34 spacious workstations creating a comfortable working environment. This provides a functional space for collaborative and individual learning. The children have access to the suite in Literacy, numeracy and computing. There are also clubs during lunchtimes and after school.
