Computing

At Whyteleafe our vision is for teachers and pupils to be confident users of technology so that we can develop the skills, knowledge and understanding that will enable us to develop a curiosity for learning and inspire creativity.  Throughout the different year groups, children at Whyteleafe become autonomous, independent users of technology who gain confidence and enjoyment from their activities.  We use a range of devices, including iPads and Chromebooks, and ensure that technology is a tool to support teaching and learning across the whole curriculum.  We also aim to improve access to learning for pupils with a diverse range of individual needs, including those with SEN and disabilities, using voice typing, specialist software packages such as Clicker and 1:1 laptops.

E-safety

We hold regular assemblies informing and updating our already knowledgeable children on the benefits as well as dangers of using the internet.  Our Digital Leaders are our E-safety Champions who actively promote and encourage others to be respectful and kind online.  Recently we received our 360 Degree Certificate of Commitment as the first part to gaining the full 360 Degree online safety accreditation (https://360safe.org.uk/Accreditation).

Computing

The teaching of computing at Whyteleafe goes from strength to strength.  In EYFS and KS1 we use Code-a-pillars and Scratch Junior to help children learn about algorithms and how computers work; in KS2 we use Scratch as well as Turtle Academy and Python to help deepen our understanding of how to write a computer program.  The enthusiasm shown by the children is evident in lessons.

Across the curriculum

Our children are digitally literate, using devices to help with learning across all subjects.  We are moving towards becoming a ‘Google school’ with all KS2 children and staff using Google Drive and apps, and are looking forward to our teachers becoming Google Certified in the near future. 

Clubs

At Whyteleafe we run 2 lunchtime and 2 after school computing clubs.  In the Year 2 Scratch Junior club, the children enjoy using Scratch Junior to create interactive and fun animations.  At the KS2 Code Club the children are able to use Scratch or Turtle Academy to create games and animations, helping each other and sharing their skills across different year groups and classes.  We are an official host of Code Club https://www.codeclub.org.uk.
