Headfield CE Junior School


It is essential that children in the 21st century have a wide and far reaching knowledge about information technology and the way it can enhance learning and communication. At Headfield Junior School, each year group has access to a class set of wireless laptops and iPads. The aim is to bring computing into the classroom and improve teaching and learning across all subjects. 

The computing curriculum is taught across all year groups and children learn a range of skills. These skills are built on year each year as children complete projects, often linked to their half-termly topic. Children in all years learn about eSafety, how to code and debug programs, presenting information, the internet and it's uses, as well as having the opportunity to explore a variety of software and apps.
